Description


The best way to see—really see—any city is on foot. The perennial favorite Washington on Foot has been completely revised and updated to offer 24 walking tours of Washington's neighborhoods. Familiar monuments and museums are all here, side-by-side with lesser-known historic sites and storied residential neighborhoods. Washington on Foot offers history, culture, architecture, urban planning, and more. It's the complete city in a tidy package and the only "outdoor" Washington guidebook needed. Ideal not only for visitors but for locals who truly want to get to know their city.

The updated fifth edition of this essential guide features user-friendly maps, architectural illustrations, historical and culture information, and much more.
