Hi there – This is Andy Detweiler from The Rockville Real Estate Exchange, your hyperlocal real estate brokerage located in, you guessed it, Rockville, Maryland. You can reach us at 240-338-8355 with questions about buying, selling, or renting here – or if you have any question in general about the area. We also have tons more local content on our website, rockvilleagents.com, so please check it out as well. Lastly, a special shout out to Katie Ostrowski, our Director of Community Service who lives in nearby Lincoln Park and was instrumental in putting this tour together. Ok. Back to the matter at hand. I’m looking forward to taking you around one of the most popular areas in Rockville today: Rockville Town Square. This mixed-use development officially opened in 2007 after a great deal of planning and research by the City of Rockville. It is conveniently situated within walking distance to the Rockville Metro station. Throughout the tour, I’ll be giving you a lay of the land, some tidbits about the area, and a glimpse at the many housing options available within Rockville Town Square. Please proceed to Parking Garage C. Once you have parked in the below ground garage and have proceeded back up to the street level, meet me outside Dawson’s Market on the sidewalk along N Washington Street. You may also be able to park on street level if there are spots available.
Welcome to Historic America’s walking tour of the National Mall. We’re glad you could join us! I’m Aaron, your guide (but I also respond to professional history nerd). This is the part of the tour where I fit in my shameless plug for our website www.historicamerica.org and invite you to use the #historicamericatours on social media while traveling alongside us today. This tour will focus on the monumental core of Washington, DC, otherwise known as the National Mall. We'll begin with the Capitol Building and the Smithsonian Museums and end with the Lincoln Memorial. Along our walk, you'll see everything in-between.
Like most conquering overlords, the Spanish made short work of destroying the culture of the highly advanced civilizations of southern Mexico. The Aztecs and Mayans were no match for the steel and germs brought by the Europeans and were soon crushed under their boots as a worthless, inferior race. That stigma was still around and growing as the Anglos started to outnumber Hispanics in the new country and later state of Texas. In 1975, Jesse Trevino, who we will talk about later, painted a mural at Our Lady of the Lake University that would set the tone for many of the murals you will see today. The center of La Historia Chicana is a large Mexican pyramid, a reminder of the proud historical culture from which they had descended. Many of the murals you will see today refer to this culture. Currently in San Antonio that Hispanic influences growing. From pioneers like Henry B Gonzalez and Henry Cisneros to current political superstars Juan and Julian Castro the stigmas and stereotypes of the past are slowly fading. On this tour you will see a grassroots effort to raise awareness of the importance of culture and family in this predominantly Hispanic area at the same time you will see some pretty good art created by people that live in this neighborhood. This will be a special tour you will remember
Hi. My name is Bill Simons, and I am going to be your guide today. I am a member of the San Antonio Professional Tour Guide Association and own a company called Cycling San Antonio that takes people on bicycle tours down to the Spanish Missions. The historical King William area is so charming and important that the City of San Antonio included it on a tour for Prince Charles’ during his 1986 visit. This was the first planned subdivision in the city of San Antonio and the first historic neighborhood in the state of Texas. Today’s tour will cover some of the more interesting stories associated with several of the homes on King William Street. You will be directed to park one street over from King William on Madison Street, but most important for this tour is that you don’t park on King William Street proper.
Welcome to Historic America’s walking tour of the Haight-Ashbury, one of San Francisco's most storied and colorful neighborhoods! I’m Aaron, your guide and professional history nerd. Before we begin, check out www.historicamerica.org to view our multitude of tour offerings and extra elements, like our podcast and Youtube series. I also invite you to use #historicamericatours on social media to show off your neighborhood adventure today. Let’s begin. During the late 1960s, the Haight-Ashbury was home to the countercultural movement that sought to create a brave new world of free expression, free love, and new possibilities. Along these storied streets, the movement’s followers - hippies - mounted a peaceful revolution against war, conformity, materialism, and oppression. There are at least two sides to every revolution, however, and although the hippie counterculture had its insights, it also had excesses. We’ll explore both today. The hippies were joined by many of the most talented musicians and the most notorious personalities of their era. On this tour, we will explore their stories (along with a few others), ultimately discovering how the “flower children” left an indelible mark on the history of the Haight-Ashbury, San Francisco, and the United States. Alright, let’s chill out, hang loose, and head back to 1967 and the Summer of Love. To get started, find your way to the intersection of Fulton & Stanyan streets.
Explore the iconic Art Deco District with Historic America! The district is home to the largest concentration of Art Deco buildings in the world. That’s exciting for architecture buffs, but it’s also pretty impressive even if you’re not super into design. The creamy pastels, neon lights, and bold geometric designs will undoubtedly win you over. We’ll start on Ocean Drive, with the sandy beach on one side, and a long strip of bars, shops, restaurants and hotels on the other. Our tour will immerse you in the heart of South Beach, showing off the architecture and transporting you to a bygone era. Picturesque as a postcard, seeped in fascinating history, and constantly buzzing with energy, the Art Deco district is a Miami must-see-- and we can’t wait to share it with you! #historicamericatours

The best way to take this tour is with a group of friends on either Friday night, or Saturday and Sunday after 12:00 noon because that’s when you get the most free booze and drinking is best done with friends. That’s right. Most of the distilleries in this tour offer free tastings of their spirits on the weekend. I have personally taken this tour, with friends, and we had a TON of free tastings so I know what I’m talking about.
