About District of Columbia

Washington., D.C., the nation's capital, folds the rich diversity of the United States of America into an area of just 68 square miles. Political power players and centuries of history fill the halls of government downtown: the White House, the Capitol, the Supreme Court, the Library of Congress and numerous federal office buildings. The National Mall hosts the country's most iconic monuments and institutions: the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the Smithsonian Institution, the National Museum of the American Indian, the National Air and Space Museum, and the bustling new National Museum of African American History and Culture. But the city runs far deeper than its biggest tourist destinations: one finds amazing food in Chinatown and Dupont Circle; gorgeous architecture in Georgetown and Embassy Row; rich cultural history and neighborhood charm in Columbia Heights and Capitol Hill.
