Moving to DC this summer

Yay for an itinerant lifestyle!

So after a year in KS we are going to be moving to the DC metro area. I have a job waiting for me in the Arlington area. At a minimum it should stabilize me for 2 years but there are a ton of jobs in the surrounding area for me so sticking there longer shouldn't be too much of an issue. Wife and I are seriously considering homesteading in that area, at least until the kids are through with school since the Deaf schools there are superb. I can retire in 4 years and then picking up a civilian job in the area shouldn't be an issue either considering my background.

So...who lives in the Capitol region? Looking for recommendations on where to live (we like yards) but don't like long commutes. Any arcade type hangouts or FB clubs etc. Things to avoid, things to look for...any recommendations welcome.

That is great you are moving out this way. I live a bit north of there but good luck finding a place with a yard and not a long commute unless you got some good coin.  Its not cheap in the dmv.

I worked in Old Town in Alexandria, Virginia and lived in Alexandria. It's pricey, but I loved Del Ray: https://www.visitalexandriava.com/plan/neighborhoods/del-ray/

You want to drive a little? Crofton Maryland is your classic suburbia type. Many people on my team still work in Springfield, VA and it's pretty much the same for them. Where you live is dictated by how much driving you can tolerate.

You can live a little further out, if you keep it close to a metro line stop, but you'll find it's pretty expensive if you live close to any of the stops. Have fun, it's a great place to live. Always something to see or do.
