I have lived in that general area for many years. It should not be too bad, since you would be commuting against the main flow of traffic (assume you work regular daytime hours).

Could you tell us more about your situation? Do you want to be near D.C. for social mingling reasons, or for graduate school, or because your spouse works in D.C.? Where exactly in the southern end of D.C. would you live? as I grew up in Oxon Hill and lived there, many years. I assume you've been there, and know about some of its shortcomings?

Waldorf is somewhat of a full-service city itself, of some 80,000 people, with a 2-level shopping Mall, baseball team, ice rink, community-college, a variety of housing options, and all the usual chain stores/ restaurants.

I dont know much about DC as I am moving from NYC. Want to live south DC as in close to navy yard or waterfront metro area mostly cause of social mingling and having city feel. Heard some negatives of oxon hill but dont really know much about. Want to live in area close to fun DC spots at the same time have easy commute.

Thanks for help

I reverse commute from Temple Hills to Waldorf/La Plata takes me about 40 minutes but it is an easy commute. Just stoplights that make it that long. From DC it will take you an hour it may get congested for you until you get to the Beltway though still a manageable commute.
