    What's happened behind these doors?

    Local resident? First-time tourist? Broke college student? No matter what, you can learn something new about D.C.'s history by joining a free bike or walking tour! WalkingTown D.C. will be conducting more than 120 free tours in 18 neighborhoods this weekend.

    From an exploration of some of U Street's more historic sights to a Capitol Hill Tree Walk, there are tours for every interest and age group. No, really -- there's even a Schooner Sailing Adventure. (Search tours by theme here.)

    Our top three? The Capital Sites @ Nite bike tour, the Spies of Georgetown Walking Tour and the Spanish Stroll art tour.

    Some of them require advanced registration, so RSVP online or call (202) 661-7581.
