While some DC neighborhoods are better for families, others are ideal for singles. This includes places packed with shops, restaurants, entertainment venues and more.

Georgetown

College students aren’t the only ones drawn to Georgetown. The Georgetown waterfront is a busy spot for boating, biking and dining. The popular neighborhood comes at a price, though. Rentals in Georgetown tend to be on the higher end of the scale, and sometimes hard to find.

Chinatown

For shopping, dining, cultural and entertainment offerings, head to Chinatown. The neighborhood also happens to be home to the Capital One Arena, making it easy to catch a game of the Washington Wizards or the Washington Capitals.

It’s no secret that DC is full of history, but some of its most historic neighborhoods are definitely worth a second look.

Georgetown

Regarded as DC’s oldest neighborhood, Georgetown dates back to the mid 1700s. Before it was part of DC it was known as a tobacco port. These days the neighborhood still contains some incredible historic homes and museums. It is also home to Georgetown University, which happens to be the nation’s oldest Catholic university. The historic C&O Canal runs partially through Georgetown. 

Capitol Hill

Known for its historic rowhouses, Capitol Hill is the place many elected leaders still choose to call home. This upscale neighborhood offers home styles ranging from Victorian to Beaux Arts designs. The neighborhood is

foggy bottom - washington dcWith a mix of young and old, narrow rowhouses and the iconic Watergate, Foggy Bottom offers a bit of everything in a prime location. This desirable neighborhood is the kind of place where you’ll find history buffs, university students and a vibrancy all its own.

Filled with condos, apartments and a much smaller collection of single-family homes, the Foggy Bottom neighborhood traditionally attracts a blend of college students and older residents. Perhaps the most well-known residential building of all is Watergate.

The infamous co-op gained its notoriety from the days of Nixon, but many famous people and political figures have also called it home over the years. These days, Watergate offers your choice of three residential buildings, housing hundreds

While DC may not traditionally be one of the most affordable places to live, it’s still possible to find some great neighborhoods on a budget. Some of the region’s most affordable neighborhoods are full of desirable possibilities.

While prices do fluctuate, some neighborhoods are definitely known for their affordability year after year. Once such example is Foggy Bottom. With easy access to trendy bars and restaurants it’s a go-to neighborhood for singles and young professionals. It’s also within walking distance of the National Mall.

Some of the appeal, though, may have to do with the available housing in Foggy Bottom. In this neighborhood, and in Forest Hills, most of the housing units sold last year were either condos or

If you’re looking for a fun way to see DC in an entirely new light, consider taking a cue from Hollywood. Some of DC’s most iconic neighborhoods are routinely captured on film.

In fact, some reports suggest more than 300 movies show DC-area landmarks, perhaps most notably some of the District’s historic sites. The movie “Forrest Gump” used the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool. You’ll also see it in the movie “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”.

If you want to see the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution or the Bill of Rights, you’ll find them at the National Archives Building. You don’t even have to leave home, though, to spot the building in the movie “National Treasure”.

Of course, the Watergate Hotel is an actual

You’ve probably heard of them, but have you ever wondered how some of DC’s neighborhoods got their names? From tropical islands to smog, it seems DC neighborhoods all have a story of their own.

Pleasant Plains

Sure, it brings to mind a “pleasant” place to live, and that may be exactly what led to the name Pleasant Plains in the first place. Back in the 1700s it’s said that a farmer bought up a large amount of undeveloped land where the neighborhood now sits. His family named part of their estate Pleasant Plains, which it remains to this day.

Kalorama

Kalorama may sound unusual to some, but that’s because it’s Greek. Kalorama actually means beautiful view in Greek. A poet in the early 1800s coined the name for the house he lived in because

With plenty to do, see and experience, Theodore Roosevelt Island presents a delightful site to visit and explore. Now maintained by the National Park Service, the island that once held farmland now serves as a tribute to a former president.

It’s said Roosevelt was a true conservationist and outdoorsman, and that’s evident across the island. You’ll find trails leading through wooded areas and swampy areas on the island. Visitors can even try and spot native birds, just as the former president likely enjoyed in his spare time.

As president, Roosevelt helped enact the protection of millions of acres of land across the United States, creating national parks, forests, bird reservations and game reserves. He also helped
