Getting Around Hillcrest
While the predominant style of home seems to be the brick colonial, Cape Cods, Tudors, Bungalows, and ranch homes are also common. Many homes are single-family houses but the eastern and western corners boast large condos and co-op complexes. Compared to other neighborhoods in the D.C. area, Hillcrest is relatively-affordable and homeowners can expect to have a decently-sized yard and ample parking.
Hillcrest is very residential so your eating options are limited. If you feel like taking a break from cooking at home or eating on your patio, you have to venture a little way outside of the neighborhood for diverse dining options. The Capitol Hill area is only about a 10-minute drive away and offers a wide selection of places new and old to try.
The people of Hillcrest take pride in their community and move to this area for its peaceful demeanor. Homes in Hillcrest are surrounded by large lawns and gardens. With a good selection of schools and an active community center, you'll find many young families living here. Expect to see plenty of joggers and baby strollers filling the sidewalks. Because of its proximity to the downtown area and affordable housing, many new families flock to this area to raise families and live in a sizeable house amidst a surprisingly hilly and tree-dense landscape.
Driven by parents and small children, many Friday nights in Hillcrest are spent enjoying the company of neighbors and hosting block parties. Although the area is not the most accessible by public transportation, the Capitol Hill area is a short drive away. If a livelier night life is what you seek, there are an abundance of options there.
Get together with your neighbors and throw a BBQ or host a cookout on your street. Let the young ones enjoy the spacious yards and ample greenery while you socialize with the fellow residents of Hillcrest. If you need a little more space, Fort Dupont Park is not too far from here.
