Awards: B Award

Historical Walk Y1037:  This 10k/6k walk is rated 1A. Georgetown has a new walk route that spends time in the Cultural District featuring new murals and permanent outdoors sculpture, but doesn’t leave out strolling by historic homes and the cool river. This new route starts at the courthouse square, wanders around the Cultural District to view public art, then joins the S. San Gabriel Trail along the river to Blue Hole and continues through shady residential areas. The 10k also includes paths in San Gabriel Park. Pets are welcome except inside buildings.
