So, who commutes in and who lives here?

I get a feeling that I'm missing out a lot on what DC has to offer because I commute in on the MARC train and really only get out for lunch once a week. Is this the same experience for most people posting in this forum? Or are y'all locals?

I commute in from San Francisco. Between the commute and work, that usually leaves me too tired to enjoy the city.

I am a commuter as well. I live in Germantown, MD. Takes me almost an hour and 15 minutes on the metro to get to work.

Live on capitol hill and love it. Only real complaint is a lack of a historical ethnic food neighborhoods. DC has the best Ethiopian food in the country but no real Italian area, or Indian area etc. For that i have to go to VA.

But from things like plays, concerts, shows, art, etc. Its one of the best.

I live in Brookland. Lived in Hyattsville previously, but moved into the city to shorten the commute and I love it. Always plenty to do and it's easy to get around, although since the kids have come along they tend to drive my activities now.

I "commute" from Alexandria, but really, its all part of the DMV.

I used to commute in from Alexandria as well, until I moved in with my gf, and ended up in Cleveland Park. Have to say, I did get out and enjoyed the bars a lot more once I was living in town - it's a much better scene when you're a 10 minute walk from a metro stop, and it's only three stops to downtown.

Now I live in California, in pseudo suburbia, and never go anywhere... sigh...
