Saturday Night Full Moon/Blue Moon Walk: National Mall Monuments &...

Meet people - see places - learn things - have fun - with our famous full moon walk!


Washington DC's monuments and memorials on the National Mall are spectacular in the evening, and even more so during a full moon. Since the March 31 full moon falls on a Saturday it's the perfect time for an evening

walk with familiar and new friends from our “Washington, DC History & Culture” group.

As an extra bonus, the March 31 full moon will also be a “blue moon,” the second full moon in a calendar month - which is quite a rare occurrence - hence the term “once in a blue moon.” It’s also possible that there will still be some cherry blossoms along the way, although the current forecast for the “peak bloom” is a few days prior (subject to change of course). We’ll schedule a cherry blossom walk (or two) and separately post it on this site in the near future.

Our walk will start and end at the National World War II Memorial and cover approximately 3 miles past Washington DC's most famous monuments and memorials. We will stop briefly at the Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln Memorials for photo/bathroom breaks.

Meet New People: We’ll have a good-sized group and it’s hard to remember people’s names. Therefore, we’ll bring blank name tags and pens and each person can write their name and their “dream” vacation - example: “Michele - Hawaii” & “Robert - Japan.” During our walk we can then discuss our past and future travels.

Meeting Time = 6:30 pm
