Price: GAS. Richmond, VA (Again, drive ...

For tourist purposes, you would do best to use "Washington, DC", not to be confused with the many other Washingtons. The town of Washington, Virginia, less than two hours' drive from DC, has an excellent and very expensive B&B known as the Inn at Little Washington. Natives will refer to "the District", or "DC", but these terms will be useless if booking ...

I'd go with Boston of those three options, but it is hugely dependent on time of day, and what other flights arrive before/after your arrival, but for your connections, the most important thing is layover time. I'd try to maximize layover time, so while Boston has less traffic (only slightly from PHL) (significantly from Newark), if you can get an extra 20 ...

An act of Congress in 1871 effectively merged the City and the Territory into a ...

While formally, it's the District of Colombia, inevitably people say Washington, D.C., from my experience. This is for two reasons. Firstly, to distinguish it from other Washington cities in the US (eg Washington, Arkansas), and secondly, to distinguish it from Washington state - which is on the west coast. I've also seen and heard it colloquially ...

You have asked for the 'formal name' of Washington, DC... As shown in the diploma below, it's "Washington, District of Columbia" and "Washington, in the District of Columbia". While the university's existence is derived from an act of Congress, the location was "the Columbian College in the District of Columbia" (no city). The contemporary use of ...
