If you want to work in Washington, D.C., but don’t necessarily want to live there, the nearby city of Alexandria, Virginia, is a great option. It’s mostly a commuter town, and many people who live there work for the government or for the military. Many of its suburbs feature older homes built fairly close together, and many people can walk to nearby parks, grocery stores, and restaurants.
LGBT people who are considering a move to Alexandria may want to look at Lincolnia Park. This is one of the older areas of the city, but it’s become a very gay friendly community. The homes here are actually priced very reasonably, and the neighborhood overall is safe and cozy. You won’t find that many condos in this area, but single-family homes tend to be priced between $350,000 and $700,000.
