Review of Washington, District of Columbia


Great town with it's challenges
Star Rating - 7/18/2019
Moved to DC 40 years ago from Mpls-St. Paul. DC is an amazing town. Downside is people are very competitive, everything is expensive. Great restaurants, foodie heaven in most groceries, lots of things to do, great day trips to choose from. Minnesota was much friendlier, but if you are here awhile you can settle into an good, interesting group of friends - from all over the World. Traffic is a nightmare all the time, lots of great neighborhoods to choose from including some of the most historic in the US. So lots of good and bad, but if you like activity, DC might be for you.
