This was the best walk that I did with my Shiba Inu while in Washington. I didn't realize until we got back to our hotel just how long this "stroll" was - and my 9-year old girl was just taking it all in.
The Tidal Basin is one of the prettiest walks you can ever do especially during cherry blossoms time. I was amazed at how serene it was despite the presidential helicopters hovering above seemingly doing exercises. Leisurely walking on the water's edge past the boat house and the Jefferson Memorial (dogs aren't welcome) and all the way around to the FDR Memorial and MLK (another memorial that doesn't allow dogs) was nice and relaxing while taking in all the sights. I had no idea that there's a wonderful Eleanor Roosevelt Memorial either until we walked past it.
There are many benches in the shade to take breaks along the way. The Tidal Basin was truly a pleasant surprise on this last visit to Washington...and Foxxy and I will definitely be back.
