The DC after Washington stands for District of Columbia. Washington DC is not a state, but instead, an administrative district. The people did not want the capital to be dependent on an individual state. Washington DC features well-maintained parks, white marble buildings and just a few skyscrapers. These characteristics lend the city a European feel. But the city also has an international flair from the diplomats here from all over the world. Since 1800, the White House has been the official headquarters of the U.S. presidents. One million people visit here each year.
On the Mall are the most significant memorials and institutions in the city, including the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials, the Washington Monument and, of course, the Capitol. Under its magnificent dome, senators and representatives meet. Other buildings in Washington worth a visit include the headquarters of the FBI, the Pentagon and the US Supreme Court, the country's highest court of justice.
