Capitol Hill

Right next to the Eastern Market and home to many families
A remarkable neighborhood with memorable structures such as the Supreme Court, Union Station and the Bartholdi Fountain. Literature or science lovers can spend a whole day at the Folger Shakespeare Library reading books and watching classical plays, or the US Botanic Garden attending gardening seminars and cooking classes. Weekends can be spent in the Eastern Market - shopping for vintage clothes and jewelry or enjoying the taste of oysters.

Reviewers say it's an amazing neighborhood that feels pleasantly separate from the big city without actually leaving it. It's home to a lot of young families, which means it's fairly quiet and very safe.

The Parkman at Lincoln Park
Quiet but very nice. Lots of young families. Decent restaurant selection. Not a lot of nightlife (besides 8th St SE which is a slightly older crowd). Generally go to U St / Dupont Circle / Adams Morgan area to go to bars, 20 to 30 minute uber (3-4 slow city miles). Decent metro access (silver, orange, blue, and red) and access to Union Station (Amtrak and buses). Close to National Mall and somewhat close to Nationals Park for baseball games. Commute to McLean HQ building is a 45 minute metro ride from Capitol South on the Silver Line. Driving w/ minimal traffic is 25 mins to office. Driving w/ bad traffic (usually in afternoons) is 1 hour.
