Neighborhoods in Washington, D.C.
The eight wards of Washington D.C.

Neighborhoods in Washington, D.C. are distinguished by their history, culture, architecture, demographics, and geography. The names and boundaries of 131 neighborhoods are officially defined by the D.C. Office of Planning.[1] Some neighborhoods can be additionally defined by the boundaries of historic districts, Advisory Neighborhood Commissions, civic associations, and business improvement districts (BIDs); however, these boundaries may be incomplete or overlap.

As the capital of the United States, Washington's local neighborhood history and culture is often presented as being distinct from that of the national government.
