Hey!
Will be working in Waldorf/La Plata, MD soon. Where should I live? I believe commuting shouldnt be a problem as it will be reverse commute. I am in my 20's, can afford rent upto 1600$. Also any recommendations for good apartment complexes in nice areas
Thank you for the help

Are you planning on having a roommate, or do you want the entire rent for the apartment to be under $1600? Are you ok with studios?

Check out SW DC near the waterfront. Seems like there's always a studio for around $1000-1100 or a 1 bedroom for a little more. And you'll also be a metro stop or 3 away from most of the good parts of DC.

Personally I like Cleveland Park and Woodley Park. Nice little areas with restaurants etc. but still kind of neighborhoody.

Tool fan: They have studios for $1500 at Camden at South Capitol. Technically in SW, but closer to Navy Yard's amenities (cause SW has few).

Camden South Capitol

Why are you thinking about living in Alexandria or Navy Yard? I'm just curious, as I wouldn't want to have to commute from either location to Waldof/La Plata every day. Even without traffic, it is still a long haul IMO. If your goal is to be around lots of young people and activities, from my experience, there aren't that many young people in Alexandria (at least not the Old Town area). I don't know about Navy Yard. Your best bet would be to joins clubs or groups like a kickball team to meet people and hang out.

You may need to budget for a parking space as well. Many of the high rise apartment complexes charge extra for parking.
