Area Information

The Washington D.C. capital region provides visitors with some of the world's most famous attractions, including monuments, museums, gardens and landmarks. The U.S. Capitol, the Washington Monument, the White House, the Smithsonian Institution, are among a plethora of other historic sites and buildings, and other tourist attractions along the National Mall and the cherry tree lined Tidal Basin with its annual spring display of Cherry Blossoms and other areas at the core of the Washington, DC area. Washington D.C. sits at the center of the region which is traversed by the Potomac River. Many of the Capital area’s most famous attractions are found in Northern Virginia, which is located just across the Potomac to the west of the District. These attractions span the time from the colonial period to the emergence of America as the preeminent national power in the twentieth century. Today, the Washington, DC area is a high technology center spawned by military, medical and other governmental research. This growth has transformed a rolling tree covered rural farming area into a region that is home to over six million people who live and work in the metro area which maintains its links to its historic past.
