Rapidly redeveloping DC is full of college students and young professionals who want urban lifestyles. They flock to the city’s countless restaurants and events–not just for fun, but to network and to share their ideas and enthusiasm for everything from politics, foreign affairs, government, and international development to urban planning, history, art, and journalism.
A Great Metro Means No Car Needed
One big difference between Washington and LA is that Washington, DC is compact, walkable, and has such a good transportation system–The DC Metro — that you don’t need to have a car to get around to all the free museums, monuments, and street festivals.
