Hyattsville or Mount Rainier off of Rhode Island Ave. Both are a short car or bike ride to the West Hyattsville Metro Stop, or there are loads of buses on RI Ave to downtown DC. Hyattsville has Franklin’s and new retail/restraunts as part of their “Arts District”, Mount Rainier has Glut – a sweet coop as well as a few other hidden gems. Mount Rainier in particular feels a bit like 1990s Takoma Park, though the same could be said about parts of Hyattsville as well. A nice mix of affordability/liveability.
