the nation’s capital.
Expanded Coverage: World-class
museums, shady parks, and an important arts scene make Washington, D.C.

reviews in this annual update offer fresh tips for staying, and playing,
in such top hotspots as Dupont Circle and Georgetown.
Illustrated Features: Thanks
to hundreds of vibrant photos, the guide is a virtual magic- carpet
ride to Washington’s most exciting attractions. Features in glowing
color propel visitors to the awe-inspiring Capitol Building, the
eye-popping sights of the National Air and Space Museum, and the
nation’s most revered resting-place, Arlington Cemetery. Restaurant
thumbnail sketches highlight the most delicious options in each
neighborhood. These special sections create a sense of intimacy with and
appreciation for what Washington, D.C. is all about.
Indispensable Trip Planning Tools: The
“Experience” chapter includes a variety of super-useful sections, such
as D.C With Kids, Free in D.C., and Top Attractions, and the
“Neighborhoods” chapter describes fascinating walks to key
off-the-beaten-path sights. Each of these eight chapters opens with a
'Top Reasons to Go' map, supported by other essential information
designed to help in planning and scheduling visits to attractions. For
those with a taste for the more serious goings-on that drive the city’s
pulse, we’ve added special features such as “Scandalous Washington” and
