Format: Paperback
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 college in DC and that I regularly go to DC for work and other reasons. In other words: I am quite familiar with DC. 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).

DK travel guides are the best. They contain all sorts of useful information. They also contain colorful pictures and maps of various kinds. They show you what you want to see with a minimum amount of space wasted on restaurants and hotels. (They should dump this useless information.) Unfortunately, the price for beautiful glossy pages is a very heavy guidebook. You want to carry them around with you, but you have to carry a pretty hefty item. I usually tear the pages of the things that I'm visiting that day out of the book and carry them instead of the whole book. It's a shame to have to do that with such a nice book, but that's the sacrifice to avoid a bad back. Of course, the general information at the back doesn't need to be carried along.

We used this book in Washington in April 2013. The maps, the metro guide, the info on the Smithsonian and other places. Typical DK.

I removed one star because of the weight.

Anytime I travel to a new city, especially over seas, I buy a DK Eyewitness travel guide. The book is designed to have everything conveniently at your fingertips while traveling in the city like subway maps, detailed information on making international calls, using any of the city's transportation systems, and compact but easy to read street maps. You can get off a subway and use the included street map to find just about anything. It breaks the city into sections and for each section it includes major sites of interest. For the most popular places to visit, it includes hours, costs, nearest subway(s), and sometimes museum floor maps highlighting the location of the most popular exhibits. I can't praise this series enough, you will literally have everything you need to get around the city on your own.

I had a 2004 copy of the book, and used it on two trips to DC several years ago. When I got the opportunity to go back in May 2013, I ordered the newest copy, and I'm glad it did. It was very useful, and the street guides and museum information are something every traveler needs.

I highly recommend the DK Travel Guide to anyone looking to get the most out of their trip to DC.

This was a wonderful addition to my walking vacation in DC. The insert maps and pocket guide were perfect for my three days afoot in DC. No complaints. Thanks for the wonderful product.
