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.

A number of DC neighborhoods have had eyebrow raising names over the years. It’s likely older residents may recall such names as Swampoodle and Civic Betterment.

It’s some of the newer neighborhood names, however, that have been raising eyebrows for different reasons. It’s not particularly because of the uniqueness of the names, but sometimes it’s that they’re getting names from developers eager to help create the next trendy area.

Take for example the neighborhood of North End Shaw. A developer first started using the name about five years ago as a marketing term to distinguish the development and offer some sense of its location in the DC area.

Flash forward a few years and North End Shaw now boasts several new apartment

Much more than just an unusual name, Swampoodle is a historic neighborhood with Irish roots. Originally settled by scores of Irish immigrants in the mid 1800s, its said Swampoodle gained its namesake generations ago from a combination of the words “swamp” and “puddle”.

Built up over the former Tiber River, the neighborhood was often marked at the time by standing water and marshy conditions. All these years later the name remains, although it’s not likely that everyone in DC remembers it.

That’s because Swampoodle is now part of the rebranded NoMA community. The opening of Union Station in the early 1900s wiped out many of the old homes that once stood in the area, causing many residents to move away.

They may not be able to claim the White House as an official address, but some 2020 Democratic presidential candidates already live in DC. From Navy Yard to Capitol Hill and H Street, several political contenders have already set down roots.

There’s also a seasonal farmers’ market on H Street, plus you’ll find an eclectic mix of restaurants and shops.

Longtime U.S. Senator and Congressman Bernie Sanders has a home on Capitol Hill. The self-described democratic socialist opted for a cozy one-bedroom, two-bath home that’s not too far from work. He’s

vio at the wharf - washington dc

DC’s multifamily condo market is booming as developers aim to lure current renters with a surge of new for-sale options. Until recently developers had favored the rental market, but that trend could be changing.

In particular, some real estate experts say they’ve seen an uptick in condo demand since the Amazon HQ2 announcement. Some estimates predict around 1,700 new condo units will begin sales this year.

This includes nearly a dozen new condo developments with at least 50 units launching sales. That’s the most large-scale projects in a single year to hit the market in about a decade.

Many of the large-scale condo projects are coming to areas that have already experienced a wave of apartment construction, including NoMa and the Capitol

A new park is coming to NoMa, and its name takes a nod to the past. The first park from the NoMa Business Improvement District is unofficially named “Swampoodle Park”.

That’s the name that garnered the most votes in a recent online survey. According to those behind the survey, the name came out on tops with about two-thirds of the 1,500 or so survey responses.

Other possibilities included calling it the 3rd and L Park or Old City Corner. The newly minted name of Swampoodle Park becomes official pending the fate of a future bill that still has to go before the DC Council and the mayor.

Swampoodle comes from a play on words dating back to the 19th century. Settled by Irish immigrants, the name is a
