Résumé

This updated edition of a popular title in Michelin's acclaimed collection of travel publications is your key to Washington's renowned monuments, museums and attractions. From the steps of the revered Lincoln Memorial to the corridors of the Capitol building, from the historic rooms of the White House to the exhibit halls of the National Air and Space Museum, from the gravesites at Arlington National Cemetery to the streets of Embassy Row, let Michelin help you discover the nation's capital. Excursions from DC highlight the best of Alexandria and the Mount Vernon area in nearby Virginia. Richly illustrated with over 85 full-color photographs and drawings, this compact guide directs you to more than 150 cultural and historic sights, selected according to Michelin's famed star-rating system : *** Highly recommended, ** Recommended and * Interesting. Fold-out maps of principal sights and two- and four-day itineraries plus a handy map of Washington's Metrorail system help you make the most of your visit. Detailed local maps guide you through easy-to-follow walking tours, and floor and site plans provide at-a-glance orientation for DC's major museums and outdoor sights. Digressions (brief descriptions of unusual shops, popular restaurants, renowned comedy clubs, recreational spots) offer options for entertaining breaks from sightseeing. Interesting sidebars cover topics from the origins of fingerprinting to the production of the nation's currency. Specially tailored walking tours reveal the architecture and history of Georgetown, Dupont Circle, Embassy Row and Old Town Alexandria. Informative essays highlight the city's history and cultural scene, explore its architecture and outline the workings of the federal government. An extensive practical information section is packed with trip planning and touring tips, useful addresses, lists of restaurants, theaters, nightclubs and other performance venues, as well as specifics on shopping, accommodations and recreation.
