Local info

Description:
The D.C. area is home to a tremendous number of cultural activities to do, especially with regard to history, both nationally and worldwide! World famous for its historical monuments and cultural landmarks, there are very few cities in The United States that compare in terms of the number of iconic places to see! Just a handful of some of these places includes The Washington Monument, The Lincoln Memorial, The White House, The Library of Congress, The Capitol Building, The Jefferson Memorial, The Smithsonian, and The National Gallery of Art.

Transportation:
Depending on the location of your housing, a car may not be necessary while living in D.C. The D.C. metro access across the D.C. area is quite convenient making travel around the city fairly easy. It is recommended that you get metro passes as soon as you can once in D.C.

The metro is very reliable, which allows the option to live outside the city where the cost of living will be a bit less expensive. Visit WMATA and goDCgo to explore all of the sustainable transportation options!

Housing:
Washington DC Metro area, and the surrounding areas like Alexandria and Arlington, is expensive. A 1-bedroom apartment can start around $1,800+ per month, unfurnished.HRC places over 30 J1's in D.C. every year so there are plenty of other J1's to help you get settled in the area! We recommend that you consider rooming with another J-1 or local to share the cost of the living. The metro is very reliable, which allows the option to live outside the city where the cost of living will be a bit less expensive. Please note, that without established credit, your first and last month’s rent may be required as a deposit. HRC recommends you arrive with at least $2,500 as startup capital and to help secure housing.

Climate:
Being located just at the most southern point of what is considered the American Northeastern region, D.C. has warm summers with often cold winters. The summer average temperatures come out to 80°F (26.6°C) and the winter average is a cool 38°F (3°C). Being located as north as it is, snowfall is also a concern, with the city getting an average of 15.5 inches (39 cm) per year. Aside from snow, it also rains frequently in D.C., with an average annual rainfall rate of 40.78 inches (103.6 cm) per year.
