Glad to hear you feel Logan Circle merits a repeat visit. Agree! Following the signs along the self-guided "A Fitting Tribute: Logan Circle Heritage Trail" would be the perfect follow-up to our walking tour. Thank you very much for attending! -Carolyn Crouch, Founder, Washington Walks

Great you could join the walk of D.C.'s Southwest waterfront neighborhood. Thank you for attending! Having access to Ft. Leslie J. McNair and the famous (infamous?) Grant Hall was rewarding.
