"Woodley Road NW is a Great Location to Work, Play and Eat"
Woodley Road NW is a great location and if you have the opportunity to find an affordable apartment or condo to rent in this area, then grab it before someone else does. This is one of the prime areas in the city to live, work and play. Old, but not that old, established but not stuffy, this road starts (on one end) at the city's beautiful Rock Creek Park and runs past large and small apartment buildings, hotels and the magnificent Washington National Cathedral, which is at the edge of Georgetown. Woodley Road NW is close to the Washington National Zoo and its famous panda bears, the Washington Metro, numerous eclectic and ethnic eateries, popular night spots and is within walking distance or a short cab ride to Georgetown University, American University, George Washington University, the Kennedy Center and the downtown mall attractions. Visitors to Washington, D.C. often stay at one of the major hotel chains in this area, since it is safe, relatively quiet and more upscale than the suburban motels. Living here is a very cosmopolitan experience. People are cordial, but everyone is involved with their own interests and activities, so don't expect to get palsy-walsy with folks right off the bat. This is a great location for someone who is coming to D.C. for a first job or to go to school.
