A native Washingtonian, Duke Ellington was born in DC in 1899 to 2 piano-playing parents and launched his career here playing for private society balls and embassy parties. There's a mural of him on U Street. Washington DC still has its share of flash parties for the diplomatic corp – a sector that contributes about $400 million annually to the local economy – but the city is home to more than 600,000 people and more than 5 million in the greater area. A substantial portion of the population is transient but they tend to be young, professional and well-educated types. This keeps local businesses on their toes and gives the place quite an unexpected vibe that visitors remark upon.
Founded in 1791, this is a planned city (based upon the greats: Paris, Amsterdam, Milan) divided into 4 quadrants, which radiate from the US Capitol building. This is a town chocked with historical buildings and monuments and has a skyscraperless centre due to hight restrictions. Many visit, with good reason, the White House, Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, Jefferson Pier, the Holocaust Museum, Vietnam War Memorial. There are numerous private art museums in D.C too, the top ones including the National Geographic Society Museum and the International Spy Museum. There's a thriving music and theatre scene too, so if you think Washington is just a boring government town – think again.
