Once touted as “The American Rome,” the city’s gridded streets are graced by grand facades and animated by the energy of seasoned politicians, bright-eyed students, and everyone in between.
In 1791, a young French architect named Pierre Charles L’Enfant conjured a vision for a new capital city on a spit of swampy land nestled at the confluence of the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers. More than 200 years later, the District of Columbia spans 68 square miles and boasts more than 160 monuments and memorials, dozens of museums, libraries, and theaters, and countless festivals and street fairs. Explore the spirit of the capital with Context's Washington DC private tours and Washington DC small group tours.
