This guide contains descriptions of all the attractions, from the Smithsonian Institution to the White House, star-rated to help you spot the absolute must-sees; listings for hotels, restaurants, nightclubs and shops in every price range; a detailed portrait of the history of this fascinating city, designed by French architect and urban planner Pierre Charles L'Enfant; more than 25 maps to make getting around a breeze.
