About Washington DC (Metro Area)

The Washington, DC Metropolitan Area is centered on Washington, D.C., the Nation's Capital of the United States. Washington, D.C. is not part of any state, it is considered a Federal District known as "District of Columbia". The area is also by and includes parts of US states of Maryland and Virginia and a small portion of West Virginia.

Washington, D.C., is divided into four unequal size geographical quadrants (e.g. Northeast (NE), Southeast (SE), Northwest (NW) and Southwest (SW)) which are outlined by their intermediate directions from the medallion under the Rotunda of the Capitol located in the Crypt.

Originally, the District of Columbia was a near-perfect square. However, even then the Capitol was never located at the geographic center of the territory (the geographic center was located near the present-day intersection of 17th Street, NW and Constitution Ave.). As a result, the quadrants are of greatly varying size. Northwest is quite large, encompassing over a third of the city's geographical area, while Southwest is a little more than a neighborhood and military base.

There's more to Washington than just politics!

Washington, DC is more than the city where government officials and lawmakers make political decision. The Washington, DC Metropolitan Area is known for its parks, bike and hiking trails, restaurants and entertainment venues in addition to being home to a variety of museums and cultural sites. It is serviced by an extensive public transit system and has the perks of a large city.

Each neighborhood in the surrounding towns and in the District has its own flavor and atmosphere.
