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

The new administration may not officially take over until early next year, but some have had ties to the DC area for years, including President Elect Joe Biden and Vice President Elect Kamala Harris. While President Elect Biden and his wife once called Number One Observatory Circle home, they didn’t move far when his VP term ended nearly four years ago.

It’s said the Bidens soon began renting a home in McLean. That home offers around 12,000 square feet of living space, with five-bedrooms, a huge driveway, a gym and a sauna.

The Bidens have reportedly been tied to number of different properties in DC and in Delaware. They’ve owned a lakefront property in Wilmington, Delaware since the mid 1990s. They purchased the home around the same time Biden

Georgetown’s East Village is a favorite of families today, but a strong sense of community is just part of its appeal. The area is also filled with history.

Separated by Wisconsin Avenue, East Village appropriately sits to the east of the roadway, while West Village sits to the west. While some say the terms are primarily used for real estate, others say a rivalry between the two can be traced back centuries, to the time a group of Episcopalians split from a west side church and established another church on the east side.

Some grand homes in the area were constructed as far back as the early 1800s in East Village. Although the neighborhood is said to be a bit quieter than its western neighbor, over the years Rose Park in the

DC may be home to some of the nation’s priciest real estate, but some neighborhoods continue to attract buyers primarily interested in an all-cash sale. While the percentage of all-cash sales is down slightly overall compared to previous years, it’s still an attractive option for a large number of DC area buyers.

Looking at the first eleven months of 2019 alone, cash buyers made up about 17-percent of all homes purchased in the District. Previously all-cash transactions had been holding around 20-percent or even higher.

In other words, about one in every five homes or even nearly one in every four homes in recent years has sold for cash. Surprisingly, the majority of DC neighborhoods attracting all-cash buyers are some of the priciest.

You may not think much about it as you drive over or under Georgetown’s “Buffalo Bridge”, but the bridge actually has a history all its own. Also called Dumbarton Bridge or the Q Street Bridge, the landmark first went up in the early 1900s.

At the time, locals were looking for a way to reduce traffic along M Street and make it easier to travel to some of DC’s other fast-growing neighborhoods and to downtown. The problem, of course, was Rock Creek.

One idea was to divert Rock Creek through a tunnel, but that would likely have cost millions of dollars. The much cheaper alternative was to build a bridge stretching across Rock Creek Park, thereby connecting up Dupont Circle to Georgetown.

Crews considered moving an existing

Another multi-million-dollar property just hit the market in Georgetown, and this one has ties to a big name. The detached home once belonged to Good Morning America anchor George Stephanopoulos and his wife.

One of just two homes on this particular block of 31st Street, the home is now on the market for close to $7 million. Originally constructed in the early 1900s, the six-bedroom, 6.5-bath home offers more than 7,000 square feet of living space.

Included in that is a generous amount of room for entertaining. The large home is said to have a grand foyer accented with herringbone-patterned flooring. The home also boasts high ceilings.

The red brick Colonial additionally offers such luxuries as a media room, a home gym and an elevator. In
