Hello! I am relocating to the DC/VA area in November. I will be attending George Washington University. I am hoping to gain insight on what area would be best for me to reside. I am a 34 young professional. I am a woman and single so somewhere safe is a priority.

In particular I am hoping I will receive recommendations on actual rental communities/buildings. If you know of any you think I would like please let me know.

I would like a washer/dryer in the unit and have cats. I am looking at Arlington, Alexandria, Georgetown and Foggy Botom. I am learning the metro system and will have a car. Please let me know which would be best for the area you recommend.

Thanks so much!!!!

I see a lot of replies on similar posts, hope they were helpful.
Nice apartment buildings right around Foggy Bottom -- full of hospital professionals. If you find something in your budget, why not start right there? You definitely need a long weekend to look at possible housing before you plan to move.

Well I think if you have to have a car then you might consider VA because parking is gonna be rough or expensive in Foggy Bottom. I vote Arlington or Alexandria like Del Ray or Old Town. In Arlington maybe Clarendon or Ballston. Rosslyn might work but I'm not familiar with it been there once and it seemed too congested to have a car in. But yeah VA because you'll only be like 10-15 minutes from the city and parking will be better.
