Is Metro Center Right for You?
Metro Center Neighborhood: Metro Center is a business district at the heart of Washington, DC. At the junction of almost all of the metro lines—Red, Orange, Blue, and Silver, it is also a major transportation hub in the city. The National Mall is going to be a 15 to 20 minute walk or quick ride on the Orange line. Shoppers will find everything from high-end boutiques, like Gucci and Kate Spade, to discount shops like Forever 21 and H&M. From Metro Center it is a short walk to all of DC’s major tourist destinations. Metro Center is also home to Madame Tussaud’s and Ford’s Theater. Foot traffic dies down on weekends as you won’t find many who actually live in this area, though upscale condos have started going in at various spots in this neighborhood, such as City Center. While Metro Center is generally a safe neighborhood, you will find panhandlers on the corners and should take care when walking around at night
