Today, Parenting Magazine released their 2011 Best Cities for Families list, ranking Washington, DC #1. This announcement comes just days after Clear Capitol’s June 2011 Home Data Index (HDI) Market Report, ranking Washington, DC as the top performing real estate market in the country.
Parenting Magazine cites the history, the government, the breathtaking architecture and inspiring monuments—you don’t have to be a child to get an amazing education in this city. Our nation’s capital is also known for its plenitude of museums—in fact, there are 44, second only to the Big Apple!
If your kid enjoys visiting the National Air and Space Museum, imagine fostering his love of airplanes with trips to nearby Gravelly Point Park for front-seat views of the takeoffs and landings at Reagan National Airport. The Capital Crescent Trail, a hard-surface trail from Georgetown to Bethesda, MD, developed on an abandoned rail bed, is a great bike trip that is off the beaten track.
