The District of Columbia is best known as the nation's capital and governmental center, but it is also a center for artistic, cultural, and technological activity. From historic Capitol Hill to eclectic Adams Morgan, the District's diverse neighborhoods make it a city of unique character and quality. Casual cafes and upscale bistros line the trendy streets of Georgetown, while the downtown district sizzles with a host of new restaurants. From the city's many parks to the jazz clubs on U Street, Washington has something for everyone. The District has been the site of many important events in American history, and with its abundance of social resources and teeming political activity, it will surely be the site of many more.
