hi bees!

any washington dc bees out there who can help with living recs? we are moving there late fall and will ideally like to buy a small place... we have a toddler and i don't drive... so hoping to live in a dc area where we can take the metro/bus around the city on a daily basis. any tips/help in researching schools, safe/easy to metro/walk areas would be super appreciated!!!! TIA!
