Our nation’s capital offers residents a plethora of historic and cultural destinations along with first-rate restaurants and a multitude of shopping opportunities. With the Capitol as its center, the district is divided into quadrants (NE, NW, SE, SW) with plenty to see and do in each. If excitement, politics, and plenty of people are appealing, then this is the place to reside, if your wallet fits the price tag. With the median home values at $636,000, DC ranks as the 5th most expensive city in the US, but jobs abound. Numerous federal agencies, robust tourism, and private sector employers help support the high cost of living.
