Description
Get inspired and plan your next trip with Fodor's ebook travel guide to Washington, D.C. Intelligent Planning :  Discover all of the essential, up-to-date travel insights you expect in a Fodor's guide, including Fodor's Choice dining and lodging, top experiences and attractions, and detailed planning advice. Easy Navigation for E-Readers :  Whether you're reading this ebook from start to finish or jumping from chapter to chapter as you develop your itinerary, Fodor's makes it easy to find the information you need with a single touch. In addition to a traditional main table of contents for the ebook, each chapter opens with its own table of contents, making it easy to browse. Full-Color Photos and Maps :  It's hard not to fall in love with Washington, D.C. as you flip through a vivid full-color photo album. Explore the layout of the city and popular neighborhoods with easy-to-read full-color maps. What's Covered? Get to Know Washington, D.C. :  No trip to our nation's capitol would be complete without a trip to The Mall. This expanse of green is at the heart of D.C., stretching from the Capitol to the Washington Monument and is lined by some of America's finest museums. D.C.'s most famous monuments are concentrated west of the Mall and along the Tidal Basin. In the Capitol Hill area (dominated by the Capitol itself along with the Supreme Court and the Library of Congress), follow Hill staffers to find restaurants, bars, and a thriving outdoor market. In addition to the White House, the White House Area and Foggy Bottom is the home of George Washington University and offers great art at the Corcoran and Renwick galleries as well as performance at the Kennedy Center. Don't miss Downtown's many attractions including Ford's Theater, the International Spy Museum, the National Portrait Gallery, and the American Art Museum. By night, crowds head to the Verizon Center, Chinatown's restaurants, and movie theaters. Georgetown, the capital's wealthiest neighborhood, is great for strolling, shopping, and partying. Dupont Circle is a hub of fashionable restaurants, shops, and is also home to the most visible segment of the gay community. Visit the Kalorama neighborhood for an enclave of embassies, luxurious homes, and small museums. Looking for something more offbeat? Head to Adams Morgan, one of D.C.'s most ethnically diverse neighborhoods, for restaurants, shops, and happening nightlife. The U Street Corridor also offers trendy boutiques and hip eateries. And don't forget to check out the Upper Northwest. This mostly residential swath of D.C. houses two must-see attractions: the National Cathedral and the National Zoo. Note :  This ebook edition is adapted from Fodor's Washington, D.C. 2012 but differs in some content.  Additionally, the ebook edition includes photographs and maps that will appear on black-and-white devices but are optimized for devices that support full-color images.
