Key Facts about Washington DC

Washington DC: Originally designed by the French architect Pierre L’Enfant in 1791, Washington is a city of green parks, wide tree-lined streets and very few skyscrapers, all of which give it a European air. The city, which attracts almost twenty million visitors each year, is divided into four quadrants – perhaps the most famous is Georgetown, a historic district with elegant 18th- and 19th-century townhouses, home to many influential residents, as well as chic restaurants and shops. The most famous sites are concentrated along the central Mall, including the White House, individual memorials to four of the greatest presidents, and the superb museums of the Smithsonian Institution.

In the latest 2019 The Economist: Global Liveability index the quality of life in Washington DC was ranked 40 among 140 cities worldwide.
