Summertime is for taking walks, so walk with us as we Step Into Summer! This June, Ridgewood Walks continues our walking initiative to create a more vibrant and connected community by promoting a walkable downtown, all month long! Throughout June, free, guided themed tours will be lead by local ambassadors who will give you the opportunity to learn about our village's history, neighbors, local business owners and community leaders.
Tours give our residents a chance to learn more about Ridgewood's beautiful historic sites, parks and business establishments. They cover a variety of subjects, including architecture, food, fashion, and religious centers...and they're FUN! Sign-up begins at end of May—and all through June— as we add tours. Take as many tours as you like!
