ADC Map & Travel Center - Washington D.C.
Speciality Shops: ADC Map & Travel Center Speciality Shops Review

I love bookstores and specialty bookstores even better. While walking around DC one afternoon we came upon this Travel and Map center. We decided to take a look and see what they had to offer.

They have a large selection of travel books and cd's, maps, and even some hard to find "street finder" maps.

What to buy: I don't recall if we purchased anything, I think that we may have picked up a pocket DC guide.

Speciality Shops - CLOSED: Candida's World of Books - CLOSED Speciality Shops Review

I enjoy browsing bookstores, and travel bookstores all the better. Candida's is a small place located near Logan Circle. Candida's carries a pretty large selection of travel books considering they are quite small (in bookstore stanadards that is). If you're in the neighborhood, pop on by and peruse their selection of travel related books, assorted best sellers and children's books.

What to buy: Their travel books. Sadly, I've just learned that this book shop has closed.

Pentagon City: Fashion Centre at Pentagon City Malls Review

We took the metro out to Pentagon City from the DC city center for some last minute Christmas shopping. Here you can find all the typical shopping mall stores along with speciality stores, department stores, and of course the food court.

Totally love their food court here at Pentagon City.

What to buy: Stopped at Macy's for a pair of shoes, some women's undergarment and a few other items.
