    This review is from: Frommer’s Washington, DC Free and Dirt Cheap (Frommer’s Free & Dirt Cheap) (Paperback)

    I’ve lived in DC now for 16 years and have tried to come to know the city as much as possible. I have also had to entertain visitors with interesting touring itineriaries. The authors of “Free and Dirt Cheap” have put together an enviable, well researched guide for not just what to see and do for free in DC….but what to see and do in DC. From daily museums and gardens, to regularly scheduled weekly, monthly, yearly events like the Marine Barracks Evening Parade or the WNO Opera in the Park, to bars and restuarants; it seems like they have really done a lot of legwork and gone to the places and events they recommend. And with their occasional ‘Splurges’ categories, this is a good source book no matter how thin or thick your wallet.

    THIS BOOK CONTAINS A WEALTH OF INFORMATION, AND I PLAN TO GIVE A COPY TO EVERY VISITOR AND SUMMER INTERN I MEET. I ESPECIALLY LIKE THE CHAPTER ON PARKS AND GARDENS – DC HAS SUCH GREAT OUTSIDE SPACE. THE INFORMATION ON MUSIC AND CONCERTS IS A REAL FIND, AND THE ITINERARIES WILL BE FUN TO FOLLOW. SO MANY THINGS TO SEE AND DO ON A BUDGET – ALL LAYED OUT IN ONE VOLUME.
