Old Town is a cute area with lots of shopping and great restaurants. It's not as busy or loud as DC and can be more affordable. Getting into DC is easy with two metro stop options. Some cons would be that it doesn't have extensive nightlife options if that's what your into. However, it's a perfect option for a more low-key night that DC bars.
Great neighborhood that is close to restaurants and shopping. Not a lot within walking distance unless you live in the heart of Old Town (which we don't) but we are also relatively close to DC. Short Uber ride, great place to consider if you've never lived in the area before.
The Del Ray neighborhood is very cute. Lots of mom and pop type stores and restaurants. Small town feel. Very young couple with new baby and dog type of place.

There is a pretty unsafe area right next to the neighborhood, so be careful. Also, there is no metro nearby.
Quite neighborhood that is close to Rustico and Buzz. Short distance to Mount Vernon Trail. Harris Teeter is within walking distance or a short car drive. For drivers, easy access to both Rt 1 and GW Parkway.
Lots of new development populated by yuppies and hip new businesses/restaurants, mixed in with pockets of section-8 housing and shady groups of people walking the streets.
It's a great mix of city and community suburbia. The area is for all ages and includes much diversity. It has great public transport and many shops and food options.
Public transportation is excellent. Really don't need a car. Holmes Run Park great for running and bicycling. Restaurants, shopping and malls within 5 miles.
Old Town is a great place to live if you don't want to live in downtown DC. There are always tons of things to do as well as great bars and restaurants.
