Great walk through the Navy Yard area. I modified the trail a bit to catch some monuments I wanted to see. Really enjoyed the sign markers with history of the area.

Nice neighborhood walk with historic signposts. Nice area, safe, and surrounded by restaurants and bars. The last stop is by the Eastern Market, which is an open air Market with crafts, fruit and vegetables, and food trucks on weekends, and has a permanent indoor market all week long.
