This excellent guide to the nation's capitol will benefit adult as well as younger tourists. The body of the book consists of pictorial maps (appropriately drawn in red, white, and blue), which pinpoint an extensive collection of points of interest. The text provides helpful hints and interesting sidelights for the visitor to investigate. As an aid in planning itineraries, the city has been divided into areas, which can be feasibly covered in a day -- Capitol Hill, the White House, the Monuments and the Tidal Basin, the Mall, Embassy Row, Georgetown, and the Potomac. There is a large index, which includes pertinent information, such as addresses and visiting hours.
