This is a nice compact guide with many great photos. It is organized quite nicely and is a great help in finding your way around Washington DC. Unfortunately, this book has not been updated since 9/11, and contains a great deal of out dated material. The book does have a sticker on it saying it is being continually updated, but the version currently being shipped is not up-to-date. When using this guide make sure you call ahead for visiting any government agency, building or office.

While I find the DK/Eyewitness travel guides excellent for European cities, the new one on Washington, DC doesn't live up to the usual standard. I live and work in DC, and know the city and its attractions very well. There were several inaccuracies in the book; most glaring was the misinformation about the Portrait Gallery and National Museum of American Art. These museums are currently closed for a 3-4 year renovation project, but you'll find that according to the DK guide, they're open for business! Hopefully, revised editions will correct such errors, and expand the scope of the book into some of DC's wonderful neighborhoods (Cleveland Park, Shaw, Brookland) that weren't covered in this first edition.

Great book for people that not only want to get around through the city, but also to learn about the history behind every major monument. The book is packed with useful information and great drawings and pictures. Perfect guide book for anyone that wants to explore the capital.

My son chose this book for researching our trip to DC. So far it is the usual great quality of information from DK Publishing. So many small maps, pictures with facts and great reading information. These are great for kids and adults. Thanks DK Publishing! ...We did take the trip to DC and found that this book was easy to carry with us and had ton of very valuable information. This was that best book for Washington DC. We got it for our son but we ended up using it alot!!!
