Most people visited Washington DC, as part of a class trip or at least learned about our nation’s capital at some point in school, but what’s it like actually living there? What do residents do, and where are the best neighborhoods for Washington DC apartments? Despite the capital’s proximity to some of the most famous landmarks and historic sites in the U.S., the area is remarkably modern, full of amenities that appeal to all generations and new businesses that pop up and add charm to the neighborhoods.
There aren’t that many neighborhoods in the 68-square-mile capital, but each offers a unique personality to residents and visitors alike. For hip Washington DC apartments, retailers, public art, nightclubs and eateries, look no further than Adams Morgan along 18th Street; for historic, high-class living near Georgetown University, check out the aptly named Georgetown; head to Foggy Bottom, home of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Watergate, George Washington University and plenty of world-class restaurants; and visit Logan Circle, DC’s last remaining all-residential circle with late 19th-century rowhouses encircling the circle’s central park and neighborhood recreation hub. Other neighborhoods not to be missed include Woodley Park and Cleveland Park, Downtown, Penn Quarter, Dupont Circle, Chinatown, Capitol Hill, National Cathedral and the Arts District.
Washington DC prides itself on having a reliable, effective Metro transit system that isn’t too difficult for residents and visitors to master. Six color-coded train lines transport riders from the suburbs, city neighborhoods and Washington DC apartments, usually running every 5 to 15 minutes (depending on the time of the day) and it’s possible to travel between any two stations on the entire map without making more than one transfer. The Metrobus services more than 11,500 bus stops in DC, Maryland and Virginia on 325 unique routes, so when the train isn’t the most convenient option, odds are good that there will be a bus stop nearby.
Whether you’re jetting around the capital for work or play, heading to see a live performance in a jam-packed bar or on a historic stage, or relaxing in the sunshine at the National Mall or at a sidewalk cafe in Adams Morgan, there’s always something going on steps from Washington DC apartments. Where neighbors become friends, cherry blossoms are celebrated, history is made and the past is honored, Washington DC, is truly a gateway to all the best the United States has to offer.
