We can enjoy some of the finest dining and shopping that DC has to offer just down the road - like Georgetown or Capitol Hill, but it's too bad we can't currently do the same in our own neighborhood. We have people who come year round to enjoy our quadrant of the city, especially in the spring during the Cherry Blossom Festival.
Here are some other neighborhoods in major U.S. cities that are supposedly most like Southwest:
New York (Manhattan) - Midtown
New York (Brooklyn) - Carroll Gardens
LA - Westwood
San Francisco - North Beach
Boston - South End
Chicago - O'Hare
Denver - Golden Triangle
Miami - North Coconut Grove
Baltimore - Canton
What do you think about these neighborhood comparisons?
