Welcome to the Capital of the US. Though a large urban area, the Washington DC Metro splits off into little neighborhoods each with their own personality, appealing to those seeking small-town vibe.
Washington DC residents will never be bored with museums, markets or theatres right on their doorstep. Sports have a high presence in the area, offering those who want to get out there and cheer for local teams the chance to show their support for outfits such as the Washington Redskins, the Wizards, the Capitals or the Nationals.
Budding nightlife and restaurants appeal for after work relaxation time, and to really get away from it all hiking and camping in Shenandoah National Park or Great Falls State Park is an option.
The reach of the Washington Metropolitan area covers Washington DC, spanning outward to parts of Maryland and Northern Virginia. Getting to work is much easier than many other metro areas with thanks to The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) who operate a successful and far-reaching public transit system with a network of trains and buses. All this means that properties in Maryland and Northern Virginia are all within a short commute to the center of Washington, making them appealing districts to consider.
