A travel guide to the U.S. capital, Washington DC. They say that no one is really from Washington DC, but everyone is there for a reason. It has been called the murder capital and the capital of espionage. It is one of the most famous cities in the world, but its local culture is relatively unknown. Join Globe Trekker traveller Justine Shapiro as she goes beyond the myths and mystique to get at the real DC and the real Washingtonians, from the corridors of the power to the bluegrass bars. She also discovers the history of the first settlers and the founding of the nation at Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown.
