Washington D.C is the capital of the United States and the center of all three branches of the federal government. This bustling national hub is one of many east coast cities that host one of our car shipping affiliates.
The city sits along the Potomac River between Virginia and Maryland. Although the population is almost 700,000, the population is raised by commuters from surrounding suburbs to almost 1 million during the workweek. Being the center of the nation’s government, many of our customers to and from this area are government workers from places like Quantico for the FBI and military personnel from surrounding bases and the Pentagon.
Besides the Pentagon, the closest military station in the area is Fort Mcnair Army Base. Fort Mcnair is located on the peninsula where the Potomac River and Anacostia River meet. It’s home to the National Defense University, an institute funded by the Department of Defense for high-level training, education, and the development of national security strategy. It’s also the official residence of the US Army’s Vice Chief of Staff.
There are many historical sites throughout Washington D.C. The National Mall is one of the most recognized, with the Washington Monument and Jefferson Pier near the center, as well as the Lincoln Memorial and Reflection Pool, and many war memorials. Other popular sites are the Smithsonian Institution, 19 museums, and the National Zoo, all free to the public thanks to partial funding by the US government through an educational charter by Congress.
There are three major airports the serve the D.C. metro. The Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport is in Arlington, VA, just across the Potomac. A major hub for many arriving and departing international flights is the Washington Dulles International Airport. The third is the Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, which is the busiest airport of the three.
Nine of the 10 universities are private institutions. The Corcoran College of Art and Design, a public college, is known for specialized art instruction, but with the closing of its art gallery, it operates under George Washington University. The University of the District of Columbia is a public university offering both undergraduate and graduate programs.
Like most of Maryland, Washington has mild to warm spring and fall seasons. Summers are usually hot and humid, and winters are chilly with decent snowfall amounts. The weather is affected by the bay and ocean.
Washington D.C. has four professional men’s sports teams and one women’s as well. The Washington Wizards with the NBA and Washington Mystics with the WNBA play at the Capital One Arena.
