Around Burleith

Burlieth is ideal for walkers, empty nesters of all ages, singles, roommates, and small families. The neighborhood lacks in large homes, so families typically leave the neighborhood when they grow.

There is no Metro, or subway, access--to get around residents walk, ride buses, taxis, or rideshare services, or drive. Parking however, is scarce.

The best part of Burlieth is its proximity to Georgetown. The restaurants on M Street and Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown are a short walk from Burlieth. While largely residential, its proximity to the commercial hubs of Georgetown provide residents with the best the area has to offer.
