I usually stick to Rough Guides, Lonely Planet or Dorling Kindersley when buying tourist books but I found this at the local library and decided to buy a copy as it seemed so good. It also made sense to buy a guide written by an American magazine rather than stick with a UK publisher.

I especially liked the easy-to-use maps and plentiful, up-to-date and relevent photos spread throughout. It's coverage of the many and various museums and galleries in DC is excellent. I could see at once which ones suited me.

Overall this is a clear, easy-to-use tome, which is short enough to look things up quickly whilst providing enough detail to be useful.

Weak Index 21 Feb. 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
We bought this guide to provide weekend ideas. We are residents of the Metro Washington Area, so thought this would be a handy guide. However, we were quite disappointed with the index. Few items are cross indexed - so the Navy Memorial is not listed under Navy, but under the US Navy Memorial. Want to find the American Art Museum? Can't find it in the Index under American Art or even Art. You will find it under Smithsonian Americal Art Museum. Places appear to be only list in the index under their full official name - which you have to know to find it. Want to visit the FBI building? Not even in the guide.

Excellent picture book 5 Mar. 2009
By E. Lowe - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was the best picture book for DC. VERY detailed maps and great descriptions/history of monuments. Excellent museum guide focusing on the "must see" exhibits in whatever museum. Minimal hotle/restaurant descriptions, but for that I got Fodor's guide. BEAUTIFUL rich color photos.

Great Book 19 April 2009
By Johnny - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I think these Nat Geo books are the best. Not for hotels or restaurants, but outstanding for deiscovering sights that appeal to you with their fantastic photos of each place they review.
Super, But Outdated 19 Mar. 2014
By Earle Williams - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When we got this, it was very current and very useful. However, that was over 5 years ago. We recommend a later edition.
