I’m thrilled to finally announce some news about a new project! Over the next several months, I’ll be writing a new D.C. travel guide for Moon/Avalon Travel, a division of Hachette Book Group. My book, Moon Washington, D.C., will be published in Spring 2018, and feature selective picks for restaurants, nightlife, arts and culture, hotels, and even entire itineraries in my hometown.
Founded in 1973, Moon was one of the first advocates of independent travel. Moon started with guides to Asia and has become the premier publisher of guides to the Americas. The authors are in-the-know locals who have a real passion for the destination, covering the must-see tourist spots as well as off-the-beaten-path local favorites.
I’m looking forward to pounding the pavement in all four quadrants to revisit my favorite spots as well as get a look at some of the new and exciting things happening in the District, from Dupont Circle and Georgetown, to the Hill and Penn Quarter, to Anacostia and Union Market and Ivy City. It won’t just be a travel guide; the book will be full of history and stories and insights about what makes modern-day D.C. so fascinating. So, yes, you D.C. readers can buy it, too! I promise you’ll discover something new about This Town.
Stay tuned for more details, and follow me on Instagram at @samanthasault for a peek at the spots in the book. Do you have a favorite, hidden place in D.C.–a garden, a diner, a boutique, a little-known gallery–that I might have missed? Tell me in the comments, or send me an email.
