Getting Around Brentwood

Around Brentwood

One of the perks of living in Brentwood has to be the abundance of on-street and off-street parking. Even though this neighborhood is in the middle of the city, the quiet feel of Brentwood is certainly unique. If a short distance to the Metro is key, there are newly renovated condominium buildings only a few minutes away from the Rhode Island Metro. If looking for a larger, single-family home complete with its own carport (a rare convenience in the city), finding something of your liking should be no problem.

Although the dining option are limited within Brentwood, the surrounding area offers a variety of food options. There are also traditional neighborhood staples right there in the neighborhood - like Chinese and classic BBQ.

Brentwood is home to many younger working professionals seeking a community a little quieter than in some of the more active D.C. neighborhoods. On some nights, expect to see the adjacent neighborhood, Langdon, busy with concert goers as D.C's nightclub and live music venue, Echostage, is located there.

Residents of Brentwood are familiar with its quiet demeanor, but if residents are interested in exploring the nearby nightlife then easy transportation into the city make that a breeze. The nearby H Street corridor is bustling with a lively selection of bars, clubs, and music venues. If live electronic music is your thing, see what's on the calendar at Echostage.

Hop on the Metro and enjoy a beautiful day Downtown, visiting museums and trying a new restaurant. On a warm day, why not spend an afternoon at the National Arboretum, located just south of Brentwood. If you're in the mood for something in the athletic department, you can always make a trip to the Brentwood Community Center.
