Washington DC is the capital of the United States of America. Commonly referred to as "Washington", "the District", or simply "D.C.", the city was founded as the seat of government after the American Revolution and was named after first President of the United States and its Founding Father- George Washington. Washington was planned on a grid system with expansive streets and avenues in a quadrilateral shape, while their frontiers provide plenty room for landscaping. This strategy was earlier followed in the scheming of other famous cities like Paris, Amsterdam, and Milan. Today, travelers will find it as the city host to nearly 200 foreign embassies and international organizations like the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.
