Moving to Washington DC was one of the scariest and most exciting parts of my life. I chose to attend Georgetown University because I fell in love with the campus, the town, and the city. Having visited Washington DC a few months prior to my move, I was swept off my feet by the greatest city in the United States.

I honestly believe that. I have lived all over the country--Houston, Texas, Los Angeles, California, New York City, Chicago, Illinois, and Washington DC. I've had the good fortune to visit America's other big cities like San Francisco, Dallas, Atlanta, Detroit, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Cleveland, and San Antonio. The only place that ever held a candle to DC was Austin, Texas.

Moving to Washington DC Is the Best Move You Will Ever Make

If you are moving to Washington DC, and you have a family, you will pat yourself on the back as soon as you get settled. This is the best place in the world to have kids, especially if you place a high value on education. While living in DC, I finally connected fun and learning. The crucial places to visit in DC like the National Gallery of Art and the Smithsonian Museums are incredibly fun places to visit and you walk out each time having learned something new.

You can't help but expand your knowledge base when you live in Washington DC. If your company plans on transferring you and gives you the option of moving to Washington DC, please leap on this opportunity. If you're single, married, gay, straight, black, white, or breathing, you owe it to yourself to explore this city for at least a year.
