Van Ness

Once the site of the Civil War, Van Ness has changed itself to embrace art, culture, cuisines and fashion. Places from Acacia Bistro for Mediterranean cuisine to the ideal urban escape at Rock Creek Park are well liked by most of the locals in the area during the weekends. The Hillwood Museum and Gardens of DC helps residents to catch their breath and enjoy the collaboration between art and nature.

The best part is that it is very quiet especially at night. You don't hear much road traffic at all. Very close to multiple grocery stores. Lacks nearby restaurants/bars- could use more of those!

Neighborhood Rating
4600 Connecticut Avenue
The area is quite suburban, especially off connecticut avenue. Plenty of parks and green space, which makes it great for pets. There are a few cafes, but no nightlife to speak of, and nearby grocery stores are definitely smaller and dated.
