Madams of DC Walking Tour
July 29 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT$15 – $25
Off the Mall Tours welcomes you on the most unique walking tour in Washington, DC!
Washington experienced an unprecedented rise in prostitution during and after the Civil War. During this period, Pennsylvania Avenue became DC’s most notorious red light district, from the ramshackle “boarding houses” of Murder Bay to the glamorous pleasure houses of Marble Alley, all within sight of the Capitol.
This walking tour starts at the Willard Intercontinental and travels down Pennsylvania Avenue, which was the main thoroughfare along which DC’s red light district arose. There is a half-way stop at Hill Country BBQ for a bathroom break and refreshments.Tour ends at the National Museum of the American Indian. Tour runs approximately 2 – 2.5 hours.Tickets are $25 for adults, $15 for children.
