Forest Hills Reviews

15 reviews
The neighborhood is very nice. Many things are in walking distance like a few restaurants, a movie theater, and the Cleveland Park Metro stop. It is a bit of a food desert in that the grocery stores and restaurants that are accessible are a tad on the expensive side. The neighborhood is pretty quiet and people are usually pretty friendly. Overall, a decent neighborhood for people at different stages in their lives.
There are not a variety of restaurants around and the area is not very diverse or cultured. It’s very white with the exception of the Howard law and UDC students and a few people from the embassies
Van Ness is on several bus routes and very near to the (Van Ness) metro stop. Moving off of Connecticut Ave. quickly becomes entirely residential, but there are restaurants and other amenities (such as grocery stores, dry cleaners, etc) along Connecticut. It's not a crazy or busy neighborhood like several others, which personally, I appreciate, but it does mean you'll have to go a bit farther than home if you're looking to go out for the night.
Pros: safe area (I can let my dog out after midnight and feel safe), <10 min walk to metro, bus stop right outside, grocery store/CVS <10 min walk away (although the giant isn't the greatest), lots of on-street parking available (great for guests),
Cons: not a lot of activities within walking distance
Van Ness/Forest Hills is quiet and a little boring. Not a lot of places to go out to eat or grab a drink in the immediate area. However, Cleveland Park and Tenleytown are fairly close. I love walking our dog up around International Drive and the embassies there. We frequently see deer coming up from Rock Creek Park, and the UDC/Howard Law students are mostly very courteous (many of them live in the neighborhood too, so they care about it also). The neighborhood feels very safe--lots of police presence, Secret Service sub-station in the neighborhood, and the local vagabonds are not aggressive to pedestrians--they mostly mind their own business.
The neighborhood is very nice and very quiet. It has a metro and a nice size grocery store, right next to it.
It is a very safe area, very family friendly.
The only con is the fact that it is not a very vibrant neighborhood.
Metro and grocery stores very close by. Some good restaurants also very accessible, with Cleveland Park easily walkable for more options and some bars. A bit far from downtown but plenty to do.
Pros: Safe, quiet, near rock creek park and zoo. H busses are convenient, as is the Metro. Cons: a little too far away from things, expensive, not much going on in the neighborhood.
