    Ft. Myer/DC Area

    Advertisements
    DHs orders just got switched to Ft. Myer Ive been planning on him going to Korea this whole time so I don't really know anything about the DC area. We are moving in June, and I would love to meet anyone around there!

    This is our first PCS, and I have no idea where to start. I think we are planning on moving to Alexandria. I've been looking at some places online, but there are so many! I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations on apartments to look at?

    I can't wait to meet all of you!

    Alexandria is a great choice I have several friends that live there, it's lovely. My recommendation would be to try to rent as place as near Old Town as you can.

    I am!! I can't wait to get there! I have heard a lot of good things about the area, except for the cost of living . We're from a really small town, so DC will be an adjustment. We are both really excited, though. Do have any advice on apartments to rent? I've been looking on ahrn.com, but I'm clueless about the area.

    welcome (almost) to NOVA

    I highly recommend taking some of the ladies up on their PM offers about Alexandria, it is a great area!! (but like many areas has some not so wonderful parts) I know a few neighborhood names, but def talk to people who live there to get the skinny on what parts are good
