••• Bring the City to Life! •••

When people think of our nation’s capital, a few things come to mind, namely power, history and cantankerous politics. While all of this is true (for both good and ill), Washington, D.C., has a whole lot more going for it than that. Let Scott Deckman’s D.C. Essential Guide show you around town with the aid of pithy descriptions, maps and pictures.

The District of Columbia is home to scads of diverse restaurants, eclectic museums, unique festivals and a broad range of people from all over the world. Along with the expected historical treasures on the National Mall, you’ll also find high-class shopping in Georgetown, local kitsch in Adams Morgan, jazz and rock in the many clubs along the U Street corridor and some of the prettiest scenery anywhere in Rock Creek Park. The guide hits all these high points.


• 179 descriptive entries

• 774 high quality pictures of the city

• Easy-to-use maps for getting around

• The nearest Metro site listed for nearly all destinations

• 24 Hidden Gems, cool stuff the other guides will probably overlook

• All the major monuments and historic sites

• Loads of ethnic restaurants and a huge selection of the best bars

• Live music venues

• Seasonal festivals

• Family-oriented events and sites highlighted
