Look around lesser-known sites, such as the grave of Pierre L'Enfant, the city's Botanical Gardens, the Old Post Office and a host of historical homes throughout the capital. From George Washington's Mount Vernon to the Kennedy Center, trek through each era of Washington, D.C., for a tour of America's most beloved sites. Join author and Washington insider Alison Fortier as she carefully curates an expedition to our shining city on a hill.

Product Description:
The Not For Tourists Guide to Washington DC is the urban manual to the city that no local, or tourist, should be without. This map-based guidebook divides the city into 46 mapped neighborhoods. Each map is marked by NFT’s user-friendly icons, which help locate the essential services, transportation, and entertainment venues in the area.

Want to know the best place to grab an al fresco cocktail? NFT has you covered. How about exploring little residential suburban pockets far away from the National Mall? We’ve got that, too. The nearest up-and-coming restaurant, farmer’s market, LGBT venue, or football game—whatever you need—NFT puts it at your fingertips. The guide also includes:

• A foldout highway map
• Over 100 neighborhood maps
• Coverage for nearby universities and Baltimore
• Details on parks and outdoor activities
• Information on the National Mall and the US Capitol

It’s the main weapon in implementing our “No resident left behind!” policy.
