WASHINGTON, June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Purple Passport adds a Washington DC edition to its collection of established online city guides, developed especially for sophisticated travelers. This is the eighth guide in the growing series, which has received acclaim for highlighting the best places to eat, stay, and play in domestic and international cities.


The Purple Passport unbuttons DC, a city often known for its play-it-safe conservatism by highlighting the scintillating metropolis in terms of its fashion-forward shopping, hot nightlife spots, and trendy boutique hotels. Now cool, cosmopolitan, colonial and conservative all at once, the diamond-shaped city is as glittering and tough as its gemstone counterpart- and The Purple Passport's DC guide leads the way into the city's expanding artsy-urban energy.

"Washington DC by The Purple Passport sets itself apart from other guides of the region by keeping with the demand for more individual and authentic travel experiences," says co-founder Emily Brands. "The DC guide elevates travelers' experience of the city, taking them away from a purely patriotic DC and bringing them towards the exceptional hidden gems."

While preserving the grandeur of DC's history and its politicking present, the new guide aptly highlights that there is not just one side of DC to savor. "With consumers relying more on personal information and recommendations, DC by The Purple Passport offers a first hand experience and more interaction with local communities," says Jenn Garcia-Alonso, co-founder.

In addition to the new DC guide, The Purple Passport offers guides to Paris, London, New York, Palm Beach, Los Angeles, Beijing and Taipei. All guides can be accessed for free at, and many can be purchased at for Kindle. For more information, visit:
