Welcome to Washington DC!
Washington DC is a ‘district’, not a state, and is only under the jurisdiction of the United States Congress. All three branches of government (The Congress, the Executive, and the Supreme Court) are located in ‘DC’, as it is commonly called. Washington DC is the capital of the USA, and is located along the Potomac River.
Being in the mid-Atlantic zone, the climate of the area is humid sub-tropic. The summer temperatures average just below 80 degrees and the winters often contain ample snow and freezing temperatures, even occasional blizzards.
If you are in the federal government, DC is the place to live due to it’s proximity to government agencies and thousands of related buildings and headquarters. There is also a wealth of historical sites, museums, and areas of interest to the tourist. That includes the Smithsonian Institute, National Museum of Natural History, the Air and Space Museum, the Lincoln Memorial, and of course the White House.
Washington DC is a fascinating district and has a thriving tourism and real estate industry.
