Welcome to Washington, one of the most exciting and beautiful cities in the world. America’s Federal City is the seat of government as well as a city of monuments and memorials.

The District of Columbia, full of culture, charm and intrigue, also has an international side in its embassies and everyday neighborhoods.

Aside from its many obvious attractions and sights, the District is known for its politicians, scandals and other prominent citizens. It has some of the country’s oldest churches and has been the base for some of the world’s greatest authors and musicians.
