The dozen diverse neighborhoods that comprise the district's 68 square miles feature a unique mix of culture, art and architecture that, when combined with the area's historic significance, make this among the most dynamic places in the country to live, work and play.

Washington, D.C.'s economy is driven by biotechnology, education, government, health care and technology.
