About Washington DC
Located on the banks of the Potomac River, situated between Virginia and Maryland, is the capital of the United States – Washington D.C. Officially called the District of Columbia, Washington D.C. is actually neither a city or a state, but a territory.
For those who love to be close to the action, living in D.C. will put you right in the middle of the nation’s heartbeat. 630,000 people call D.C. home and more than 20 million tourists visit each year. Most residents work in the tourism industry or in various levels of government positions.
One would be hard-pressed to find a destination anywhere else in the world that is home to as many museums, monuments, political / cultural centers and other destinations of historical significance as Washington D.C. is. The nation's capital is also home to a variety of beautiful parks and gardens as well as world-class shopping and dining.
