Washington D.C., formally the District of Columbia, is the capital of the United States. It is not officially a state and is therefore directly overseen by the federal government and governed by a mayor. Most of the city including the White House was burned down to the ground by the British during the War of 1812. Some popular landmarks include the White House, the Lincoln Memorial, The Washington Monument, the Newsuem and the Smithsonian Institution. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is a treat for visitors of all ages where they can learn personal stories of Holocaust survivors. Art lovers should visit the The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
