- City in Virginia
Current Resident: Where the quaintness of a small town can be found outside your front door, while history, culture and hustling vibes of the big city are just down the street. Historic buildings combine with young hip singles and large or growing families to create an atmosphere of belonging and hometown nostalgia. Whether you’re visiting or unpacking here, you’ll be glad you came!

- City in District of Columbia
Current Resident: I've lived in DC since I was born and it's definitely a great place either to visit or live in. It is an artistic hotbed with its array of unique museums and other unorthodox but fascinating artistic experiences (such as Artechouse, a gallery that displays technology-based, interactive art). Its restaurants are unparalleled, especially in the Wharf, Georgetown, and Chinatown areas. Georgetown also hosts an amazing amount of stores perfect for anyone wanting to spend a day shopping. For history buffs, DC also offers a number of significant sites relating to the history of our country. For families with young kids, the zoo and Rock Creek Park provide places to play. Even the public transportation is great compared to other cities I've visited (though the metro is often slow on weekends). The main drawback is the high cost of living, and it's also worth noting that it's moderately hard to extract oneself from the politics-oriented environment if you live here for a while.
