ITMB is increasing its coverage of the USA and what better way to start than with the nation’s capital city. I must say that, as a Canadian, Washington is one of the truly grand cities I’ve visited in the world. It is, of course, a hub for Americans, almost a secular pilgrimage site, but is also a fabulous treasure trove for international visitors as well, with museums and monuments depicting the growth of a great nation. Since the previous edition, the Martin Luther King Memorial has been completed and added to the map and the Jefferson Monument has completed a refurbishment. This is one of the most-visited cities in the USA and one really NEEDS a map to uncover all the statues, memorials, and buildings of interest. Of course, hotels, shopping areas, transportation hubs, parks, etc are also included. With this edition, we also have added a full-sheet map of the Eastern Corridor of the USA to the reverse side of the map. Starting with Boston in the north, through NYC and Philadelphia to Baltimore and on past DC to Richmond and Raleigh, the Eastern Corridor encompasses one-third of the population of the United States and a dozen States. The map shows road and rail connections, with motorways noted in blue and toll roads in green, and includes major historic and touristic sites within the area of coverage.
