What people say about our neighborhoods

In Columbia Heights, I can walk to the grocery store, run into friends on the street, and take my dogs to the dog park, and then hop on the Metro (or my bike) and be downtown in minutes to attend a meeting or seminar or visit a museum. Columbia Heights is basically a small, friendly town that's adjacent to the nation's capital.

Mount Pleasant is a warm and inviting neighborhood, perfect for porch sitting and making new friends. We love being able to walk to an eclectic mix of bars, restaurants and shops. Wouldn't want to live anywhere else!
