Adams Morgan — 8.7/10 Rating (based on 19 neighborhood reviews)
Great mix of tree lined streets with pretty old brick homes and restaurants, coffee shops, nightlife, etc. Near Rock Creek Park for an escape from city life and exercise. Near the zoo for fun time off. Convenient quality grocery stores within walking distance (Harris Teeter, Safeway, etc.). Dog park down the street. Families with children playing outside into the evening.
Allen Park Condo
The location might be the best part of the Melwood. There are tons of amenities within short walking distance. Lots of cafes, parks, the metro, etc. all nearby. It is on the pricier side of DC.
Great place to live. It is quiet, but night life is a short walk away. A lot of good places to eat are close by as well. The neighborhood is beautiful. Other than parking it's all good.
It is the young social scene area of Washington DC. The other spot is U street which is only a few blocks away. However you are at enough away from the main nightlife area so you will never hear any of it.
The Envoy Apartments
Adams Morgan has a great mix of families and young professionals, which means blend of coffee shops, grocery stores, and restaurants and bars. The neighborhood looks incredibly different in day vs. at night -- so has something for everyone. Public transport isn't ideal (no metro stop and not a ton of buses) but is a great place to live and can get most places in the city pretty easily.
Great neighborhood at the intersection of 3-Mt pleasant, Adams Morgan, Columbia heights. It's a shlep to school though--Bus and shuttle or 30 min door-to-door (hilly) bike ride.
The Argonne Apartments
I love living in this neighborhood, we are super close to bars, restaurants, shopping, and transit.
The area around Columbia Pike stretching west from the Air Force Memorial is a great place to live. There is an amazing tennis court facility and public park nearby, and it is close to many great restaurants and bars.
Dorchester House Apartments
Lots of bars/restaurants in walking distance
Not a lot of noise in my particular area... but a few blocks over, lots of bars!
Dupont is convenient, fun, safe. I really love living here. The commute to campus takes ~30mins on the GUTS shuttle. There are tons of coffeeshops in the neighborhood for non-campus studying too.
Best restaurants, bars, shops.

Adams Morgan is close to downtown and has a lot of reasonably priced bars and restaurants. It is a safe area but also is very lively and has a lot of diversity.
Adams Morgan is a popular nightlife spot with a neighborhood feel. 18th St is crazy on weekends, but just a few steps away are quiet residential areas. It offers a wonderful location for those who like to explore their surroundings (including restaurants and bars offering fare from around the world, and the 1st class Meridian Hill Park), while offering a quick escape from the bustle of city life. This is not downtown, nor is it a suburb. The demographics are nicely varied, unlike some ritzier areas nearby. A very interesting and comfortable place to live.
Admo has a reputation for the weekend evening activities that occur but Adams Morgan is also a great neighborhood gem to spend time in. With so many food options and parks within walking distance, it's perfect for more than just going out on a Saturday night. You have the perfect balance of night life with being in a walkable neighborhood which is also close to several other happening neighborhoods.
since moving in back in 2010 , the neighborhood has always been family friendly and just overall great.
Although the community is a 10 minute walk from Adams Morgan and U Street, it still feels very private. I can see the Washington Monument from my window, but it is like a little suburb that comes out of nowhere in NW DC.
Adams Morgan is fantastic. Its close to everything and has a ton of great things so you don't really have to leave.
Great place, great food, fun
