Now in its eighth edition, the guidebook continues to be a best-seller among traveling families, visiting school groups, and area residents.

It's packed with historical information, fun facts, puzzles, and games, and includes activities designed to familiarize kids with D.C. subway and city maps. In addition, the book covers how the city of Washington came to be, why monuments and memorials are important, and what historic preservation is all about. Bound like a workbook for easy use, the guide includes addresses, phone numbers and tour information.
