My husband and I are planning to relocate to DC this summer. We currently live in Brooklyn, in a neighborhood with lots of young families, and lots of stores and events that cater to babies and toddlers, and are looking to find a similar neighborhood in DC (we're expecting our first in June) We're not quite ready for the suburbs, and we want to find an area that's family friendly. I'll be working at home, so I'd like to be in an area where there are other working moms. Any suggestions?

Capitol Hill is practically Stoller City. They have an insanely large and organized Mom's group called the Moms of the Hill (MOTH). Other neighborhoods with lots of young families include AU Park, Dupont Circle, Palisades, Chevy Chase, and Georgetown. Unfortunately, those are some pretty expensive places to live in DC.

You may want to redefine suburbs. While I'm sure giant strip malls of Targets and Walmarts are the last thing you'd want, some of the inner beltway areas in the DC region might be more pleasing than you would expect. AU Park and Chevy Chase in DC for example are not that much different from those areas you find technically across the city border (Chevy Chase MD, Bethesda, MD). Would encourage you to look at some of them in your search as well.

In DC proper I'd put Capitol Hill and Glover Park at the top of the list.

Search North Arlington, especially Lyon Park, Lyon Village and Clarendon-Courthouse. Zip 22201 has your name on it!
