Review of Washington, District of Columbia


JFK summed DC up best when he said...
Star Rating - 9/25/2011
"Washington DC has the warmth of the north (east) and the efficiencies of the south."

Good points: Well informed, generally intelligent populace. Lots of cultural things to do. A clean, charming city. Fairly good mass transit inside the city.

Not so good points: Not a friendly place. Lots of rude foreigners. Expensive. Horrible traffic. Very uncomfortable year round (below sea level.) Lots of anti-white discrimination. Toxic work environments. Forget about mass transit outside of DC.

Overall: A better place to visit than live.
