Where you’ll be

Washington, District of Columbia, United States

Anacostia is an interesting dichotomy as it is an up&coming DC urban neighborhood with rich early-20th century historic architecture. It is 1 block away from Frederick Douglas Smithsonian Museum and this neighborhood has LOADS of character! It is a 10-13 minute walk to the metro. I think it is safe: kids go to school, people go to work, and I walk this route for nightlife or when I need to go to the airport. However, I think some people find it intimating because, frankly, it's an urban place with a whole lot of black people and that scares some people who may be from small cities, etc.

Hello- I travel a lot and have used Airbnb which I loved so I decided to open my home to other Airbnb guest. I think my home is beautiful and hope you decide to visit with me!
