Default Early 30s couple relocating to DC

My husband and I may be relocating to the DC area in the next year and a half and are wondering where to start looking for housing. We'd like to live in the Capitol City or Georgetown areas (or areas similar to those) that offer lots of opportunities within walking distance, other young couples, and plenty to do. My husband is in the military and will be working in/near the Navy Yard and I'm not sure yet what I'll be doing but we'd like to also live close proximity to metro lines for work. We are looking for a place that is at least 2 bedroom with 1.5 bathrooms, parking would be a plus. We plan to spend time in the area well before we move to check out possible locations, but would love to hear from others where we should/could start looking.

It sounds like Capitol Hill might make sense for you. Specifically, you may want to check out the Eastern Market and 8th Street SE (I think they call it Barracks Row, now) areas -- both are walking distance to Navy Yard, are on Metro lines, and have plenty of good things within walking distance.

Your budget will be the real driving factor. Georgetown is one of the most expensive parts of DC, and parts of Capitol Hill are also very expensive. How much can you afford to spend on housing? I would also suggest that you post this question on the Northern Virginia forum, which gets significantly more traffic than this one. You will find a lot of military folks living in northern Virginia.
