Washington DC Monuments by Moonlight Tour by Trolley

Washington DC looks spectacular when lit up at night, so make the most of your time in the city by going on an evening tour on an open-air trolley. Going on an organized tour saves time working out local public transport, and means you can learn along the way through guide commentary. Tick off lots of top landmarks such as the Lincoln Memorial, the White House, the Washington Memorial, and more.

Visited to hear an author speak about newly published book (about female domestic terrorists in the 1980’s). Great venue and experience. The audience questions were interesting, intelligent, and inquisitive. Overall a very enjoyable afternoon and experience. The bookstore is world renowned for hosting famous and significant authors and speakers. Definitely worth the trip up Connecticut Ave to visit this iconic bookstore. Makes one feel hopeful about the future of the world, politics, the US, and retails stores.

if you like browsing in bookstores politics and prose should be on your radar on a visit to washington, dc. excellent collection of books and nice book-related merchandise. although i've never been to any, i know that p and p hosts interesting talks/literary events and also has a few bookclubs going. the cafe downstairs has good coffee, tea, snacks and light meals. it's the perfect place to meet friends or to retire to, computer or book in hand, for a happy hour or three. for me, no visit to DC, however short, is complete without a visit to politics and prose.

Pure joy is the face of a four and a half year old girl as she gets to the bottom of the staircase and sees a big room full of books and other things. A very friendly and helpful staff person asks what she might be looking for and she says "butterflies." Quickly five butterfly books are identified and shown to her. Next she asks for zoos and there were other suggestions as well as a puzzle and book about visiting a zoo. After ample time with books and chatting with other kids, she asked to go to The Den for something to drink and maybe some yogurt. On the way she spied cool socks she and her year and a half old sister had received for the holidays. While she lives in Seattle, she feels very much at home at P&P when she visits DC. And after P&P, she wanted to go directly to Sugar Fox for ice cream. For others, The Den has a new coffee roaster, Vigilante Coffee Company. The coffee is better than ever. Also, the author events over the spring and into June have been wonderful. P&P is an exceptional and extraordinary community resource on so many levels (and now in several locations across the city).
