Mroberts24 saidLooking to spend anywhere from $500 - $600 on housing. Although the job is great, it doesn't pay too well.
thanks for the help thus far.
in dc, you're gonna need a roomate or two to find a place with those rent prices...
as for places to hang out and explore- for newbies, its always good to get familiar with the Mall and the museums and tourist spots, just to get them all under your belt. Georgetown is really fun for shopping or a nice dinner with friends- great to walk around and people watch. Dupont Circle is supposedly where the night life is, but i haven't done that yet since i live an hour away and don't wanna drive home buzzed.
