"In the 2009 Inaugural Parade, over 10,000 people from all 50 states will follow the President and Vice President from the Capitol down the 1.5 mile route on Pennsylvania Avenue.

The Parade route can be seen in this image where the outline in magenta is restricted to pedestrian traffic only and "M" stands for a Metro station, many being closed for security reasons.
