We're moving to DC!

Recommended Posts

My FI is an officer in the Coast Guard, and will be moving to DC in January.

 

I have started looking at housing and jobs, quite overwhelming!

 

If anyone knows the best places to live, I would love to hear your advice. I have done research online and sounds like the Adams Morgan/Logan Circle area is pretty popular. We really want to live where there is stuff to do, nightlife, restaurants, culture.. We are 28, no kids, so we want to be able to walk to things.

 

I have been looking at apartments.com and craigslist to get an idea about housing. Not sure if anyone knows of any other good resources.

 

Thanks!

I am not much help with the DC area, but I am sure you will find something that will work out for you too. Are you hoping to go with him in Jan or a little bit afterwards? Best of luck with everything!

I think both of those places are great. You will have great choices for entertainment with either one. I know some people like the Cleveland Park area and Dupont Circle. I work in Dupont Circle often and it's entertaining. Good luck with your search.

Hi Hannah,

 

I live in Cleveland Park in DC and would be more than happy to answer any questions that you may have!

 

All of the area's mentioned above sounds great. My one warning with Adams Morgan is that is can be a little "too" nightlife oriented, IMO. Think passed out college students on the sidewalk.

 

As long as you can walk to a metro stop the whole city will be at your fingertips, :o)

 

Personally I'm a big fan of Capitol Hill area & Dupont Circle...and of course Cleveland Park!

 

Craiglist is an excellent way to suss out housing!

 

ps) Just a heads up DC housing is expensive!!

I love 20 min south of DC and those places are nice but it can get a lil crazy around there. Adams Morgan is fun for bar hopping and hanging out but it is a bit much. I love going out and partying but I don't think I could live around there because I do like peace and quiet once in a while.

Everything is so convenient and you wouldn't need to drive much which is a bonus. But like Jocy said it is very expensive around here.

Good luck with your search.

We just went to visit friends in DC, and they live in Georgetown right off of M Street, ( like heart of shopping, bars, restaurants) and we LOVED it! The area has so much character, great to walk around too. I have also heard Adams Morgan is the place to be for bars and such, but Georgetown was awesome... best of luck!

Clarendon might also be a good option, though its technically outside DC in Arlington VA...but still lots of stuff to do and walk to and really convenient to the metro
