I will be moving to the DC area in a few months, working in the Reagan building. Will be for at least three years. I am married. Kids are grown...not with us. I can stomach at the most an hour commute each way. I am from SoCal and somewhat used to it.

Probably would like to buy condo (200-250K) or rent for around 1500.00 per month (1br, maybe 2). Schools are not important. Restaurants are important. Not into the nightclub scene; as I am in my 40s. A cool little corner bar would be nice occasionally. My wife is Mexican if that matters....maybe a good mex restaurant-not a dealbreaker though.

I heard Rockville is an OK compromise and the real estate prices are becoming more reasonable. Any advice. I havn't ruled out Virginia
