A visit to Washington can be an exciting adventure -- it's up to you. Is this your first trip to the capital, or have you been here before? Either way, this book is designed to be used by you, the young traveler. Even if you're a neighbor or native of the capital, this book will help you to explore and know your city better.

You'll find out lots of interesting facts about the major sights. Did you know that during the Civil War the Capitol building was used as a hospital and a bakery? You'll also find that there are many things to do in Washington just for fun or when you're tired of sightseeing. How about a bike ride along the C & O Canal? You'll also learn how to get around the city using public transportation.

Games and puzzles are included for those in-between times when you just don't feel like taking another step. And when you're back home, this book will be a great souvenir of your trip.
