Washington D.C

Washington DC is the capital of the United States and comprises the so-called District of Columbia (abbreviated as "DC"), a different entity of 50 states that make up this nation. Washington DC is more than a city but less than a state. It is a "district" created by the Congress of the United States in 1790 as a meeting place and for transactions for government affairs. 

Today Washington is the center of cultural life and U.S. politics. All American history is etched in the streets of this teeming city of monuments and memorials; but Washington is a city that looks to the future: it is a world capital with modern shopping centers, restaurants and countless things to do. This beautiful city has elegant buildings, wide open spaces, parks full of trees and many natural areas within the city. 

Things to see and do in Washington 

Culture 

  • Visit the White House 
  • Visit the National Museum of American History 
  • Take a tour of Capitol Hill 

Leisure 

  • Watch movies shot by NASA in the Museum of Air and Space 
  • Take in the views from the Thomas Jefferson Memorial 
  • Sit in the Meridoan Hill Park 

Travel 

  • The city is 4 hours by train from New York 
  • Outside the city there are battlefields of the Civil War 

Moving around the city - Public Transport 

The street system of the city is easy to understand but difficult to manage. The streets from north - south are numbered, and the east-west direction have letters, starting with the Capitol and extending in both directions. There may be two streets called the 3rd. (A Capitol east and west), and there may be two streets called "D" (one north of the Capitol and one south). Thus, the city is divided into quadrants. To find an address, you should specify the quadrant. There are a number of broad avenues leaving the Capitol in the form of spokes of a wheel. They create some complicated angular intersections that can confuse even the most experienced driver. 

To move within the city of Washington DC, the Metro will be your ideal mode of transportation as it reaches everywhere in the city. However, there is also a network of buses running between neighbouring towns and subway entrances. In any case, the public transport operates from 5:30 am to midnight, and rates vary depending on the destination and time of day. 

Interests

  • Washington is the capital of the United States of America and the tenth most populated metropolitan area. 
  • Its name was chosen in honour of the first president of the United States George Washington, although the district was named Columbia out of respect to Christopher Columbus who discovered America. 
  • The city was born as a planned city, and was developed in the late eighteenth century to serve as the permanent national capital. 
  • The Potomac River, flowing through Washington DC, has been considered one of the most natural urban rivers in the nation. 
  • It is a 4 hour train ride from New York and only 45 minutes by plane. 
  • Outside the city, within walking distance, there are many battlefields of the Civil War. 
  • Almost all the attractions and entrance fees are free.
