Stroll through one of the capital's oldest neighborhoods with the author of "Walking Washington, DC" to ogle famous homes of the Kennedy clan, CIA spymaster Allen Dulles, film legend Elizabeth Taylor, telephone inventor Alexander Graham Bell, Washington Post publishers Kay and Philip Graham, and other DC "celebs." The 2.5-mile walk also saunters past the final resting place of the "founder" of IBM, Dumbarton House (HQ of the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America) and Harvard's Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection (garden)
Walking Washington, DC: 30 treks to the newly revitalized capital's cultural icons, natural spectacles, urban treasures, and hidden gems. (It also has 15 back stories, maps, photos, parking and Metro information.) It's a first-of-its kind guide for natives to newbies with culture, nature, little-known fun facts, politics, pop culture, and spies. A recent review praised its "mastery of detail" and said, "The writing is engaging and beautifully organized."
