"6th Street SW Has Good Access to the Marina Area"
Living on 6th Street SW is pretty sweet if you enjoy the water, because that's where this street begins, right at Water Street. Most of the buildings toward this end of 6th Street SW are larger and relatively more modern apartment buildings, but as you get farther away from the water, the neighborhood begins to turn more citified with brick townhouses dotting the landscape. Living near the water is really nice in the warmer weather, since it's a relatively safe place to walk or jog and there are a lot of restaurants that (naturally) specialize in seafood. Many boaters keep their vessels at the marina, so it is very busy during the summer months. Often people will come down and just hang out on the boats, so it is a very friendly and warm atmosphere. The street passes close to Southeastern University, so if you live here and go to school there, it's an easy, walkable commute. It is also very close to the Arena Stage, which is on 6th St. SW and Maine, so you would have opportunities to see some great theater. All in all this is a very nice place -- close to the water and close to downtown.
