By Paul Allaer TOP 500 REVIEWER
Let me state upfront that at one point I lived in Washington DC (near Tenley Circle) and suburban Maryland (Bethesda) for 4 years earlier in my career, that my youngest went to university in DC and that I regularly go to DC for work. In other words: I am quite familiar with Washington. The other day I saw this book at my local library here in Cincinnati. Curiosity got the better of me and so I picked it up, wanting to see how DK Eyewitness Travel presents Washington.

"DK Eyewitness Travel: Washington, DC 2014" (2013 release; 238 pages) starts off with about 30 pages of "Introducing Washington, DC", immediately providing suggestions on what essentials to see, depending on whether you have 1, 2, 3 or 5 days, and then going into some further background such as the history of the city. Then we get into the heart of this travel guide, a 100 page section where it covers the 5 main areas of the city (the White House/Foggy Bottom are, Capital Hill, Georgetown, etc.). As I am very familiar with the Foggy Bottom area, I carefully read up on that section, and I must say, I am very impressed with what I found. Maps galore, detailed information street-by-street and sometimes building-by-building (or even room-by-room, for the White House), lots of great looking pictures, etc. Check out the spot-on comments about the DAR Memorial (Daughters of the American Revolution). The last section of the book gives practical information on hotels and eateries, which I happen to think is not the most critical information (people tend to find hotels in different ways, but not very often from a travel guide).

4.0 out of 5 stars Liked it 5 Jun 2014

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Liked how it broke it down by area and gave an overview as well as more detail further on in the book. Useful tips inside, great photography, good guides to the museums. Map came in very handy! Less dynamic and more formal than other guidebooks I've used.
