Want to live in the nation's capital? Washington, D.C. is more than just the political center of our country - it's also one of the most vibrant cultural spots in the whole world. But as much as you may love the museums and art galleries, living right near the mall or downtown D.C. can be a lot of money for not very much space.
Want a roomier spot to call home, where you can really stretch out and devote yourself to some decorating? You should check out the condos for rent in Cleveland Park.
If you're leaning toward renting a more spacious apartment outside of the city center, you may want to look at condos for rent in the Cleveland Park area. These homes - outside the hustle and bustle of downtown D.C. but still filled with great restaurants, boutiques, schools and parks - are just a short walk from the Cleveland Park metro. In fact, the metro stop makes Cleveland Park a favorite among commuters.
There's a lot of other perks to the neighborhood, from the shopping on Connecticut Ave to the renowned Washington International School, a coeducation K-12 day school with a renowned international curriculum and language program. Its beautiful campus is at the southern end of the Cleveland Park neighborhood and borders the Kingle Valley Parkway. There's also the Cleveland Public Library, just north of the school.
Sound like a great place to raise kids? Washington, D.C. is one of the most nurturing environments you can find for bringing up your little ones - but a condo for rent in Cleveland Park offers the best of both worlds: enough space for your kids to spread their wings, with the whole of the nation's capital just a train ride away. Plus, there's the National Zoo.
Just southwest of your new home is the Smithsonian National Zoological Park. Part of the Smithsonian Institution, the zoo is actually free - which means you'll never have to pay a cent to visit the animals or learn more about the world. Including the second, smaller campus in Virginia, the zoo is home to 2,000 different animals across 400 species. One-fifth of these are endangered or threatened and cared for by zoological specialists.
Any day the zoo is open, grab your kids - or head out solo or with friends - and walk or grab the bus to the zoo. You can check out the Panda Plaza or the Smithsonian Bird House, a colorful favorite for many visitors. There's also the Great Cats exhibit and the Smithsonian Zoo Enrichment Lab, where you and your kids can add some educational depth to your visit.
You don't have to be an animal person to see how great living in the Cleveland Park neighborhood is. Between the easy train access for the red line, the National Zoo and all the luxurious condo for rent in the area, there's a lot to love. Make this corner of D.C. your home!
