My friend just got a job in Washington D.C. but she's not sure about living right in the city.  She's considering nearby Maryland or Virginia.  She has two kids (11 & 13).

No pets, non smoking.


If you know the area and can recommend a town/State, please post it!  Also, if you have lived in a town/city that you think she should avoid, please post that, too.

She'll be looking for a short term rental (6 months) and then plans to buy a house.  If you know of a house/condo/apartment for rent, she'd also love the info on that.

I live in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, VA. Close to the city and with a great neighborhood vibe...lots of restaurants, shops, schools, etc. Lots of natural-minded parents as well. We love it here!
