Best map for DC?
We will arrive by plane and depart by train. I have enough things on Amazon now to get free shipping (!) so I need to get the best map for our upcoming May trip.

What's your favorite?

Whatever it is, makes sure you can easily see the Metro stops and the metro lines. Also, a map that shows where things are on the Mall.

Flashmaps is my favorite, period. I buy one for every destination.

I'm a big fan of Streetwise maps. I used the DC last weekend and really appreciated it. It has all the metro stops marked, plus a separate map of just the metro, and an enlargement of the Mall area showing the monuments and museums.

Yes, yes, <b>STREETWISE</b>. I was mistaken when I said Flashmaps.

I love Streetwise and have them for every destination.

Will Streetwise Maps show the area up by Shaw/Howard University? There's a Metro stop there.

Yes, it shows the Shaw-Howard area.
