Washington, DC

Neighborhood Videos

Additional Information

There's much more to Washington, DC than white marble monuments, historic buildings, and museums. Washington, DC is full of beautiful condominiums - in historic buildings, revitalized neighborhoods, new lofts and mid- and high-rise buildings. Plus, living in the District of Columbia can offer the benefit of walking home from a neighborhood nightclub or a late night at the office.

The nation's capital was designed from scratch with lots of trees and open space, and the lowest skyline of any East Coast city. (No building may be built higher than the Capitol dome.) Rock Creek Park is one of the largest urban parks in the world. The National Park Service tends tiny parks, medians and public areas around the city. Hot summers, tree-lined avenues, and old mansions converted into offices give Washington the feel of a southern city. Besides the government, tourism, hospitality, legal firms and non-profits are the big businesses, and high-tech companies have grown up around the government and defense industries.

Capitol Hill

Yes, it's a magnificent seat of power. But Capitol Hill is also a great place for weekend antiquing, cobblestone strolling and coffee lounging, too.
