Washington DC, the capital of the United States, is named after First President George Washington and is at the center of American politics, history, and democracy. It is home to the White House, Congress, the Supreme Court and many International Embassies, making it a focal point of the U.S. government. As a cultural and educational hub, many of the city's attractions are free, including museums, monuments, and numerous parks and green spaces for recreational outdoor activity.
