You know, Washington D.C. is more than just a JR High School field trip destination or the place where politicians spend your money on pork barrel projects. Washington DC is also home to some our nation's greatest Museums and was once a huge swampland that festered with mosquitos in the early summers of our republic. Moving to our nation's capital means that you will no longer have any representation in the House of Representatives or the Senate, because DC is not really a state. But that's OK because Washington DC city government has plenty of programs and assistance to help make your life easy and you can visit their Washington DC website. Seeing as the US government invented the internet, you might as well use it to make your move to the seat of the US gov't as easy as possible. It is also a great resource for online services.
