Washington D.C.

Washington, D.C., formally the District of Columbia and also known as D.C. or Washington, is the capital city of the United States of America.

Founded after the American Revolution as the seat of government of the newly independent country, Washington was named after George Washington, the first president of the United States and a Founding Father.

As the seat of the United States federal government and several international organizations, Washington is an important world political capital.

Located on the Potomac River bordering Maryland and Virginia, the city is one of the most visited cities in the United States, with more than 20 million visitors annually.

For statistical purposes, the District of Columbia is treated as a state-equivalent (and a county-equivalent) by the U.S. Census Bureau.
