Book Review: Secret Washington D.C. by Sharon Pendana

Whether you reside in the U.S. or are a first time visitor, a thrill awaits when you visit Washington D.C., the nation’s capitol. Most trips to this city include great art, architecture, and historic monuments so immense they dwarf the land around them. It’s time to see the city in a new way. Regardless of your politics or joy over the city’s amazing cherry blossoms in Spring, to really see D.C., use Secret Washington D.C to make the most of your visit.

Jonglez Publishing offers amazing local guides that stray from the common clichés and send you to surprising, offbeat or little known treasures, and in this case, tons of U.S. history and endless quirks to amuse the whole family. The city itself is a monument to culture, politics, policies, and global affairs managed by thousands of government workers and the President of the United States.

Each page of this full-color book invites you to enjoy little-known secrets, including an Apothecary Museum, “lined with apothecary jars filled with the contents of the distant past.” Elsewhere in the city, you will see stunning Tiffany windows in the American Red Cross building, and the “Mansion on O Street” with lodging and a quirky museum on site, unusual architectural ruins and so much more.

Even a lifelong resident of the Capitol City will delight in what the handy guidebook, Secret Washington D.C., reveals.
