When it comes to living in the DC metro area, driving and commuting usually come with the territory. But if enduring a long drive to get to and from work or nearby amenities doesn’t sound enticing, you’ll be glad to know that there are still plenty of options for walkable, accessible living in our area.
In a walkable community, you’ll have unparalleled access to the places that matter most. Shopping, dining, entertainment, recreation, mass transit — it’s all right at your fingertips when you choose a home at one of these accessible destinations.
Because you’ll be spending less time getting to the places you want to go, you’ll get to spend more time actually enjoying them. In some cases, you may even decide owning a car is optional because of all the transportation options that become available to you. That’s why we recommend these communities to young families with tight schedules, busy professionals or people who are just looking for a low-maintenance lifestyle.
