Neighborhoods options if you plan to move to NW Washington, DC

Neighborhoods options if you plan to move to Washington, DC

Moving to Washington, DC - Adams Morgan
There are a lot of neighborhoods that have different vibes and rent costs in our Nation's Capital.

Dupont Circle/Adams Morgan: In Northwest D.C., these neighborhoods are great locations, safer neighborhoods with lots of access to the Metro and bus. 18th Street is a popular street with cafes, bars and restaurants, which is a favorite late night spot among our team of movers.

Kalorama Heights: This is a small neighborhood between Dupont Circle and Adams Morgan that is a little gem. Great location to start out in if this is your first time living in the city. These options are quiet, with easy walk to the Metro and close to almost all embassies.

Logan Circle/U Street: Like most of D.C. these neighborhoods are “hip” and full of great restaurants and furniture shops. Note: Logan Circle is not located close to a Metro. Home to large number of music venues, plus some of the best contemporary art galleries.

 U St Corridor: It wasn't until the 1990s that the progressive  "U St" emerged from the shadow of the 1968 MLK riots. Today, DC has embraced the neighborhood's creative spirit. The neighborhood maintains the legacy of Duke Ellington and Billy Taylor with a host of hopping music venues featuring avant garde jazz, mainstream hip hop, and alt-rock. Tucked among the historic row houses are DC’s best Caribbean and soul-food restaurants.


Cheaper but farther away... 

Tenleytown: (where American University is located).  Despite the convenience offered by stores like Best Buy and Whole Foods, what Tenlytown needs are restaurants, and retail that will make its commercial stretch more of a destination.  However Tenlytown remains a pleasant neighborhood for those who can't pay the premium to live in the areas around it.

Petworth:For years, residential Petworth has felt like a neighborhood on the edge of unbridled popularity. Longtime residents and newly-arrived creative types love its lack of chain stores and abundance of independent businesses. So far, the area’s changing demographics haven’t threatened its close-knit community spirit: Petworth is the type of neighborhood where local residents come together to plant gardens, decorate parks, and build community in person.
