The Trip Hacks DC Guide to Washington, DC e-book is now available on Kindle and Kindle Unlimited!
You’re thinking of coming to Washington, DC. Excellent choice! Buy this book if you’re a modern traveler and want insider tips and travel hacks to help plan your trip. This book is not your grandfather’s travel guide. It’s not even designed to replace those dusty old books. Honestly, the value of traditional travel guides for today’s traveler is debatable. In the pre-smartphone days, travel books gave you colorful fold-out maps, big directories with phone numbers for hotels and restaurants so that you could keep all this vital information at your fingertips. Today there is Citymapper, TripAdvisor and Yelp all just a tap away. You can Google search to find the phone number for any business and have them on the phone in seconds. Why lug around travel directories when everything you need is already inside your smartphone?
Trip Hacks DC is all about tips and travel hacks. We wrote this book with the modern traveler in mind. The content that follows is curated to focus on the things we think are most important for planning and enjoying your trip. We cut out all the fluff and the long lists. We cut out the maps, because you can use Google Maps or Citymapper once you’re here. We are not the tourism board and are not trying to sell you on the city. You are considering this book because you want to come to Washington well-informed and equipped with insider guidance. We are excited to share the honest realities of what it’s like to visit Washington, DC.
