Welcome to Washington DC
The capital of the United States, Washington, DC – or DC as the locals call it – is not a state at all but rather the District of Columbia. Monuments and memorials, eclectic neighborhoods, true local flavor – Washington, DC is a place unlike any other. It’s your home away from home with free museums and America’s front yard.
Let’s face it. Many people think DC starts and ends with the federal government, but this city has so much more – and it’s at the top of its game. Michelin-starred masterpieces. Pre-Broadway premieres. Hands-on history. Find out what the District is really all about.
