"I've lived here for four years. The area is a mix of families, young professionals, and students. It's not a hot spot for nightlife, but there's enough selection of restaurants and a few bars, and everything you really need (like groceries, a pharmacy, etc.) is here. It's very green and walkable, with lots of trees, well-kept front yards, and parks. It makes a great base, as both Virginia and other areas of DC are easily accessible by bus or car. Meanwhile, Glover Park is free of the noise, crowds, and traffic of some of those other areas."
