Having grown up in DC I assumed that I was very knowledgeable about my hometown. Wel,l after reading this book I found that there is alot I can still learn about the city I was born and raised in for so any years. As I read on it became a page turner. I have extended my fall trip to DC a few days inorder to see some locations in the City!

I traveled London a couple of years ago with a dogeared copy of Secret London in my bag, so when I spotted Secret Washington D.C. at Barnes & Noble, I snatched it up, hoping it would live up to the reputation of its predecessor. And how! Beyond the tried and true monuments and mandatory field-trip-to-the-National-Mall fare, it presents the reader with a lot of "Who knew?" moments. Everyone knows the iconic Capital building, but what about the genius ventilation towers? It's really well-written and the fascinating sidebars are smartly connected to the main text. And it covers ALL of the city, plus a bonus smattering of nearby Maryland and Virginia. A great addition to the Secret Local Guides By Local People series.
