This book saved our family time unbelievable amounts of time and money. It covers best times to visit attractions, how to get advance tickets where applicable, has accurate and precise recommendations for age and interest level for all attractions...This book is indispensible for anyone visiting our nation's capital. I found only one piece of advice in the book that I disagreed with: the authors recommend that you choose a hotel outside of Washington, D.C. proper (in one of the suburbs of Maryland or Virginia) in order to save money. However, if you are traveling with young children it is worth the extra money to stay in D.C. proper, as you will need to take breaks in the middle of the day. Trust me on this one! In all other ways this book is spot on.
This is a very informative and well laid out guide book on Washington DC- gives many helpful tips on what to see, when to go, how to get there- etc.
Basically the same treatment as other Unofficial guides. I wish they would delineate the hotel choices a little more
