Where to Live
It may not technically belong to any state, but Washington DC is home to numerous neighbourhoods and districts. It consists of the District of Columbia combined with parts of neighbouring Maryland and Virginia. An efficient public transport network makes getting around a breeze. Several neighbourhoods in Arlington, Virginia, are popular with young professionals. Check out Georgetown, home to several universities, or H Street, an up-and-coming area. Dupont Circle is a hive of ethnic restaurants and amazing architecture. To browse apartments in these areas, visit WashingtonDCApartments.com, Sublet.com or WashingtonDC.craigslist.org.
Washington DC has a climate typical of the Eastern Seaboard. Expect a mix of cool and pleasant weather in both spring and autumn. Winter can be unpredictable but very cold, so prepare for sub-freezing temperatures and lots of snow. In summer, expect humidity and soaring temperatures.
