Top DC Neighborhood for Families with School Aged Children

Is there a difference in DC neighborhoods when it comes to families with children? The trendy neighborhoods like Adams Morgan and Dupont seem filled with babies in expensive strollers and sleep deprived new moms power walking back into shape.

Everyone knows that Old Town Alexandria is a perfect blend of historical authenticity and urban sophistication along the Potomac River. George Washington, Civil War General Robert E. Lee, Jim Morrison, and Mama Cass Elliott called Alexandria home and the city still attracts visitors from near and far to enjoy this historic city. Since it was established in 1749, Alexandria has been a tobacco trading post, one of the ten busiest ports in America, a part of the District of Columbia, home to both the largest slave-trading firm in the country and a large free-black community, a Civil War supply center for Union troops, and a street-car suburb for Federal workers. Even though Old Town is known as a historic site, there are lots of new shops, restaurants, and events to draw you back to those cobblestoned streets!

It was supposed to be called Pacific Circle! The intersection of Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New Hampshire Avenues with Nineteenth and P Streets was there on Pierre L’Enfant’s 1791 plan for the city, but the land that is Dupont Circle today was not part of the original purchase of land by George Washington for the Federal City.
