My only problem is the text is rather small - but that's also because there is just so much information!
We are planning a trip to DC in April. We will be ready to enjoy our trip to the fullest. We have already sent away for passes so that we can do a WHite House tour and visit th House ans Senate. Smithsonian is huge so we are planning to spend 3 days there. We will visit the Natioal Monument, Viet Nam Wall, Arlinto Cemetary,Jefferson Memorial, Marine Museum, National Cathedral and Annopolis. We are hoping the the cherry blossoms will be out.
Usually I like a travel book not to be merely bland text, but have quality attractive pictures as well.
This book had both the information content very well covered and also had wonderful color images!
And the durable map was the most useful! I think I used the map way more than the book itself!
Btw, the writer is a bit playful in his writing and basically seems to be an author. If you don't want nice and story-like sentences and want direct to the point concise travel book to open for a few minutes while doing sightseeing, the text of this book might be a bit lengthy and not concise.
But overall a great travel book for DC. Recommended!
