    In addition to being the Nation's Capital, Washington, D.C. is a lively, cultured place to live. Whether you’re looking for a family-friendly neighborhood or a more sophisticated setting, Washington offers a plethora of housing options; from well-constructed row houses, condominiums and co-ops to single-family homes. In addition to its historical monuments, Washington also has a wide variety of restaurants, theatres, concert halls, museums, and parks.

    Adams Morgan is one of the city’s more eclectic neighborhoods with restaurants offering a wide range of cuisines, casual dining, boutiques, and independent bookstores. Housing in the area primarily consists of mid-rise condominiums and co-ops as well as various commercial structures. Adams Morgan’s annual festival is held the second Sunday in September and features live music, food, and craft booths.

    Navy Yard is another one of Washington’s popular neighborhoods. Once the nation’s largest shipbuilding facility, Navy Yard has undergone extensive renovation over the years, including Nationals Park, home of the Washington Nationals Major League Baseball team. The 41,339-seat, 3-level stadium features 79 suites on each level surrounding the infield. The stadium’s main attraction is the 2,062 - square foot Budweiser Beer Park. Situated center field, the restaurant features retractable windows and offers expanded seating three rows inside the stadium.

    In addition to being home to Georgetown University, one of the Nation’s top schools, the historic neighborhood of Georgetown offers the perfect blend history and modernity. The area’s cobblestone sidewalks, historic landmarks, and well preserved colonial and Federal period architecture enhance its historical significance. The community also offers a robust commercial appeal with a wide range of shops offering a blend of brand-name retail shops and high-quality, independent designers. The area’s restaurants reflect its waterfront heritage with several seafood restaurants as well as a wide range of national cuisine, local bars and Washington’s premier “cat café.”
