Petworth, DC

Geographic location

Northwest DC.
 

Overall Personality

Urban hotspot, with some beautiful homes and an even better commute.
 

Defining Characteristics

Being in the heart of DC, you are a 15-minute metro ride to any and all attractions in the city. Washington DC has numerous museums, both public and privately operated. There are also some of the best restaurants in the country, just blocks away. DC holds several different sporting events, and marathons every year, and being the seat of the US Government always has political rallies and parties to attend.
 

Noteworthy Attractions

The diversity of Petworth’s residents is reflected in its restaurants and retail offerings. The number of hip hangout spots such as Qualia Coffee, the French bistro Chez Billy and Domku Bar and Café, which serves Scandinavian food, is slowly rising, but they’re still relatively scarce. More common are the restaurants and corner stores lining Georgia Avenue, a central artery, that focus on ethnic cuisines such Caribbean, Ethiopian, Salvadoran and soul food. Of course, Georgia Avenue itself is changing: A Safeway under construction will emerge as a swanky grocery store with several floors of residential units above it, and storefronts along the avenue are gradually being developed.
