Global Ties is intended for International and US spouses who are interested in forming friendships and sharing cultures. Monthly outings highlight places and activities that are unique to this area or unique to the USA. For example, in the past we have visited a pumpkin patch; enjoyed a ghost tour in historic Old Town Alexandria; learned about the Super Bowl; ice skated at Pentagon Row; and walked around Capitol Hill to see the cherry blossoms.
Global Ties is a great opportunity to see and do new things in the local area while developing relationships with spouses from around the globe. We hope you’ll join us!
