In 2014, I left my desk job in Higher Ed to pursue my dream of becoming a Washington DC Tour Guide. Since then… I’ve never looked back. I love our Nation’s Capital and am passionate about sharing it with both out-of-town visitors and locals! For me, one of the most interesting and important sites in DC is the US Capitol… since our country’s humble beginnings, our ‘Temple of Democracy’ has been the stage for many, often cantankerous, debates over issues that have shaped our lives and give us all an opportunity to pursue our dreams! I’d love for you to join me on a tour of the US Capitol, so I may share with you intriguing bits of history as well as stories of a few fascinating mysteries of this most recognized building in the world!

Hello, my name is Meghan Hanson, I’m looking forward to being your next tour guide. I started out my career with a Bachelor of Arts from Indiana University in Anthropology focusing on Museum Studies and complimenting it with an Art History minor. I spent a few years as the Guest Services coordinator for the Frank Lloyd Wright Robie House in Chicago IL. It was there that I was able to truly experience the interplay between life and art. I love looking at what art says about the life we live, the life we hope for, and the life we try to hide. Since becoming a Certified International Tour Director that lesson has informed my commentary no matter what venue or city I am in. I am delighted to be working with Adventures for Creative Tourists to see what we can explore in artistry of Washington DC!
