Default Housing south of DC in Maryland

Hello. I have done a good bit of work inside DC and know the city pretty well, but not so much the southern area. I am possibly going to be moving DC this year. When it comes time for the move it is going to be a very quick move so I am looking to do as much homework as possible now. I would like to live in southern Maryland (unless you all think otherwise and northern Virginia would be better). The place I may be getting a job is either at the Pentagon or a unit of USDA off 395 just over the river. Any suggestions on the best area with convenience to the metro? I also have a dog so nearby parks would be a plus also convenient walking to many places? Any suggestions?

When you say "southern maryland" and "housing south of DC in Maryland," most people I believe think of Charles County, Southern PG County and points beyond.

Is that what you're referring to, and if so, why do you want to live there?

If you're around 395 just south of the 14th street bridge, there are more convenient locations.

Is there a particular reason you want to live in MD? Nothing wrong with it, but places like Arlington would be much more convenient to the Pentagon or that particular area of DC (I'm assuming you mean USDA near L'Enfant?). To get to the Pentagon from MD, you'd have to take the green line metro to L'Enfant, and then transfer to the yellow line to go south one stop.

totally agree with juniperbleu on this one -- pentagon city would be a great location for either pentagon or USDA, since it puts you to the yellow line which is a straight shot to l'enfant. but without knowing anything about how much space you need, what other criteria you have, what your budget is, it's pretty much impossible to give you any recommendations based on anything other than proximity and convenience.
