Current Resident: Arlington is a very clean and open-minded town with educated individuals and businesses that are dedicated to producing less waste. Many stores and retail centers are modern and well-kept. It is a family friendly area with great public schools. However, traffic is prevalent and real estate prices are through the roof. But, living a healthy lifestyle is easy in Arlington with many healthy food options and amazing trails all over!

Former Resident: Alexandria is an enormous locale. Here you have ordinary suburbia (regions like Kingstowne), you have outstanding Old Town, excellent neighborhoods like Del Ray, and you have monstrous regions of locales in those decisions.
Living in Old Town is exceptional. Everything is walkable, there are unbelievable restaurants, shops, and preoccupation, just a few stages away. The waterfront reliably has events going on, and having the alternative to walking around the Potomac is incredibly lovely. In addition, by and by, you're essentially minutes from the National Harbor and the activities there at the MGM Grand and the rest of the national harbor.

Current Resident: I absolutely love DC! It has the community element of a smaller town and the appeal of a slightly larger city. There's always something to do here: lots of farmers markets, festivals, all the free museums and attractions, lots of open, free outdoor space. It is easy to stay away from the political bubble, as well, if you're not into that sort of thing. I keep up with the news, but am no way considered a wonk, so it's great to be in a bit of a bubble here and know that people care about many different causes and the state of the world without being overwhelmed. A lot of different non-profits and fields exist here, making it a great place to be professionally. Though it's expensive, the great happy hour + brunch + free activities make it worth it. It's also super diverse, which I love as someone from a Pakistani background!
