Neighborhoods in Washington, D.C.
The eight wards of Washington D.C. (2012–2022). (Individual ward maps are for 2002–2011.)

Neighborhoods in Washington, D.C., are distinguished by their history, culture, architecture, demographics, and geography. The names of 131 neighborhoods are unofficially defined by the D.C. Office of Planning.[1] Neighborhoods can be defined by the boundaries of wards, historic districts, Advisory Neighborhood Commissions, civic associations, and business improvement districts (BIDs); these boundaries will overlap. The eight wards each elect a member to the Council of the District of Columbia and are redistricted every ten years.

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.
