Like Santa Claus - Travel the world - in under two hours! Today, we'll explore one of the most culturally fascinating areas of Washington, D.C. - "Embassy Row". In a single afternoon, you'll stand at the borders of Ireland, Romania, Turkey, Vietnam, Indonesia, and more! Many of them will be decorated specially for the embassies and we will get a glimpse of their decorations surrounding their architecture.
Someone said, decades ago, that in order to thrive as part of the Embassy Row scene, three things were needed: "protocol, alchahol, and geritol..." Fast forward fifty years as we take a walk along one of Washington's most famous grand boulevards- Massachusetts Avenue's Embassy Row. You will see some of the city's grandest homes, learn about the foreign governments that now call them home, as well as the scandals and stories of the residents who used to own them. Ever wonder if the curse of the Hope Diamond is true? Come join us and find out!
In addition, we'll sample holiday chocolate for several different international countries! As if we were trick or treating or carrolling, we;ll each savor pieces of holiday chocolate most commonly found during the holiday season at continents across the globe!
Join our expert guide for this incredible inside look into Embassy Row.
