Where to live in DC area?
October 1, 2010 12:37 PM Subscribe
I am moving to DC in a month. I want to live somewhere a short metro ride away from Union Station (I will work near there). Second, I want to be in a place where I can meet nearby single people around my age. (I am a 26 year old male.) I am not a partier, I don't drink much, and I'm not big into night life. I prefer board games, soccer, museums, exploring etc. What do you think would be the best area for me?

I am looking at Silver Spring/Takoma for the quick metro ride to Union Station, but that also means a longer trip to anywhere else. The other main option seems to be Arlington, which I have heard some good things about. If in Arlington, I think Crystal City may be the best place to live to get into the city quickly, but I am not sure if it has the kind of people I am looking for. I am also open to other areas, such as U-Street, Capitol Hill, Falls Church, Alexandria, NW DC, etc.
I prefer to spend less than $1,200 if possible, and I would be willing to live with others.
