Woodridge (not to be confused with its VA counterpart WoodBRIDGE) is a neighborhood that doesn’t get much attention as a DC destination. The unassuming residential vibe of the neighborhood is one of the features that attracts residents to the quiet tree lined streets and numerous parks.

Location: Northeast DC, along the Maryland border of Eastern Ave, west of Brookland with Rhode Island Ave running through the middle.

Why it’s great:

  • Single family homes, with yards, and alleys = the best of both urban/suburban living
  • 5 miles from downtown!
  • Barnard Hill Park: one of the lesser known Fort Circle parks, while it lacks a website you can’t miss the large grassy expanse.
  • DC Brau: DC’s first craft brewery which recently celebrated it’s 5 year anniversary
  • Community centric, spirit of neighbors helping neighbors. Check out Good Food Markets from Oasis Community Partners, helping to minimize inequalities in access to food.
  • Home to one of the few DC Rita’s water ice locations
