Local info

The D.C. area is home to a tremendous number of cultural activities to do, especially with regards 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 include 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. For a more comprehensive list of places to visit, with links to their websites, see the list of links in the “Local attractions” section of this document.

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. Also, it is important to note that the D.C. metro uses a sliding scale system regarding the cost of their metro, meaning that the further you travel on the metro the more expensive the trip will be. That means it is especially important to consider the location of your housing compared to where the hotel is.

Housing:
Housing in Washington, D.C. can be rented monthly for reasonable rates, and can be as low as $800 if shared with another individual. However, this is all dependent on the area in which the candidate decides to live. It is recommended that candidates prepare to bring around $2500 with them to help set them up once they arrive in D.C. Below are a number of housing options in the area. Below are a number of helpful links that should help kick off their search for housing!
