Living in the Nation's Capital
The greater Washington, DC, area is one of the most exciting places to live in the world. While expensive, the advantages from living so close to the political pulse of the nation as well as affordable access to monuments and a wealth of museums are unmatched. Take the time to visit the fourteen Smithsonian museums (including the Zoo) as well as the relatively new experience of attending a hometown baseball game for the Washington Nationals. Enjoy shopping in historic Georgetown or sampling tasty dishes from the number of ethnic food restaurants in Adams Morgan, the H Street Corridor and other thriving neighborhoods. Old Town Alexandria has a walking food tour that combines the best of all possible worlds -- charming homes set back from cobblestone streets -- and frequent stops at local restaurants to nosh on muffins, Italian bread and sip a craft beer.
Whatever your interests, Washington has something for you.
