Washington, DC Auto and Truck Repair
Washington, D.C, is the capital of the United States. Founded after the American Revolution, Washington was named after George Washington, the first President of the United States and a Founding Father. As the headquarters of the United States federal government, Washington is a significant world political capital. The city brings in more than 20 million tourists annually.
On July 9, 1970, Congress passed the Residence Act, which approved the creation of a national capital on the Potomac River. The precise location was to be selected by then-president George Washington, who signed the bill into law on July 16. Formed from land donated by the states of Maryland and Virginia, the initial shape of the feral district was a square measuring 10 miles (16 km) on each side, totaling 100 square miles.
Washington has a booming, diversified economy with an increasing percentage of professional and business service jobs. The Washington Metropolitan Area’s gross product was $435 billion in 2014, making it the sixth-largest metropolitan economy in the United States. As of June 2011, the Washington Metropolitan Area had an unemployment rate of 6.2%; the second-lowest rate among the 49 largest metro areas in the nation. The District of Columbia itself had an unemployment rate of 9.8% during the same time period.
With its world-renowned monuments and high-profile politicos, Washington, D.C., has long been saddled with a reputation as a government-driven town. A “city of southern efficiency and northern charm,” as John F. Kennedy once described it, Washington is often seen by outsiders as slow and inefficient. But these days, our nation’s capital is awash with new energy, transforming itself into an exciting, faster-paced East Coast vacation destination. And with a rapid increase in restaurants, cafes, boutiques, and clubs, D.C. is quickly becoming a cultural hub.
