  • Wonderful city. Very clean, safe and with several places to visit (the Capitol, White House,Library, the various memorials.....). Great restaurants. The ideal city for shopping. Anyway and a fantastic city.

  • Open every day of the week from 10am-10pm, this local bookstore is more than a place that sells books. It sells local crafts, toys, and other items. They also host author events throughout the month. The store itself is HUGE and sells any book you can imagine. If they don't have it, they can order it for you.
  • Standard bookstore with fun knickknacks for sale alongside bestsellers and top new releases. I appreciate the wide variety of genres with the mixture of both emerging and established writers. I do wish there was more space to sit an enjoy a few pages. I'm not sure what I was expecting exactly. I had hoped to be blown away by something fabulous, but instead I just found your average shop. It is kept nice and clean though.
