Description

Long a family-friendly tourist destination and educational mecca for students, Washington, DC, is immediately recognizable for its world-class museums and monuments riddled with symbolism. Washington's other signature stamp-politics-attracts visitors of a different kind. Power players from around the globe gather in the nation's capital to make history. But that's not all there is to the city. Part tour guide, part trivia book, Washington, DC's Most Wanted (TM) shows you its ins and outs (and sometimes confusing roundabouts). Included in the book's many chapters are top-ten lists on homegrown artists, authors, and athletes; historic hotels and bars known for their patrons' wheelings and dealings; local hauntings and lore; and, of course, memorable scandals that erupted within the originally diamond-shaped district. Native Washingtonians, as many know, are few and far between, but even they will find a treasure trove of entertaining facts inside these pages.
