Description

★ AUTHORED by Elise Hartman Ford ★

This is one rollicking, in-depth guide to the city. Dive into the real DC with this lively app, written by someone who's been exploring the city for 25 years. Let's define real: It's the U.S. Capitol, but also DC's jazz clubs; Georgetown's posh boutiques but also Capitol Hill's 138-year-old Eastern Market; blockbuster museums like the Smithsonians on the National Mall, but also off-the-grid galleries, like the Textile Museum in Dupont Circle; it's carryout burgers from Five Guys and it's world-class dining at Michel Richard's Citronelle. "Real" is DC at its best, and this app takes you there.

✔ Who wants to know?

Tourists, locals, those traveling to DC on business, teachers planning field trips, college students new to the area, or just about anyone who wants an entertaining but A to Z take on the nation's capital, whether for a day, a weekend, or on an ongoing basis.

✔ What would you like to know? DC ✭ A to Z tells you:

- the history behind the Willard Hotel's association with the mint julep cocktail and how to concoct one (via a YouTube clip)

- the best ways to tour the capital, whether by bike, boat, bus, or on foot

- where to go for the best views in town (hint: the Washington Monument's observation tower is not the only spot)

- which restaurants serve the best vegetarian fare (or pizza, or burgers, or Indian food, or French cuisine, etc)

- how to get an inside peek at the embassies

- those pubs where it's fine to bring the family and those where you'd best not

- highlights of the city's excellent museums, including entry, via YouTube video, to after hours parties at the Hirshhorn and other museums

- inside info that only a longtime local would know, from the name of the art museum responsible for launching countless romances to the best location for watching the fireworks on the Fourth of July.

✔ What DC ✭ A to Z offers:

- 180 total entries

- more than 2, 000 photographs

- hundreds of YouTube videos that help bring DC to life

- hundreds of hyperlinks that link entries and lead to websites for added historical and factual context

- firsthand knowledge of each experience

- descriptions of 12 neighborhoods, 45 restaurants, 62 attractions, 15 hotels, and 19 nightlife options

- ways to sort the information by category, price, and distance.

✔ This app's a snap: Easy to use and costing pennies more than a Georgetown Cupcake.
