Washington DC offers a more pleasant experience that a rural community. Between the local parks/trails, diversity of museums and international restaurants, residents experience what I would consider as quaint urbanization applicable to a variety of age groups. I would recommend living here for a few years to experience all twelve square miles of quirky city-scape. If I could go back in time and move elsewhere, I would chose not to.

Quite safe neighborhood with great schools and plenty of places to eat. However, there isn't much to do.
The primary District Police are always out and about, whereas the localized safety teams thoroughly cover their designated regions. The integration of different forces reassures my comfort in their ability to protect. In my two years of living here, I've only heard of one robbery in my specific neighborhood.
