Overview

Tired of the same old tourist traps? Whether you’re a visitor or a local looking for something different, Washington, D.C. Off the Beaten Path shows you a side of our nation’s capital you never knew existed. Search for the American equivalent of the Phantom of the Opera in the National Theatre; take a stealthy look around the International Spy Museum, with its fascinating cloak-and-dagger exhibits or experience the best mac and cheese ever at Dish. Escape the crowds at the U.S. National Arboretum, a 444-acre “mini-state” that includes the National Herb Garden, the National Bonsai and Penjing Museum, the National Capitol Columns, and even sightseeing trams. So if you’ve “been there, done that” one too many times, get off the main road and venture Off the Beaten Path.

    Great insight

    This is a great book to get the details on the Washington DC resources, beyond the normal attractions. It is well organized by districts with comments for special recommendations.
