Getting Around Langdon

Around Langdon

Langdon is a bit of a hodgepodge when it comes to housing—the center of the neighborhood is host to plenty of single-family homes in the Cape Cod and bungalow styles, while those on a tighter budget can try the condos on the western side of the neighborhood. Langdon is also home to one of D.C.’s larger retirement complexes, sprawling across a large greenspace.

The neighborhood’s main draw is its affordability. Renovators have found a niche in the area, where you can snag a house in the low six-figures—a real rarity for D.C.’s housing market. And that’s especially surprising, given what Langdon homeowners are getting for the price. Many homes in the area feature big yards and off-street parking, giving the area a distinctly suburban feel within the city.

While Langdon isn’t exactly a dining destination, you can still find a handful of places to grab a good bite to eat. From local delis to global cuisine, Langdon is host to some local favorites. Residents can also enjoy a local cafe, pizza restaurants, and more. For good food in and around Langdon, you just need to know where to look.

One word many residents use to describe Langdon is peaceful. The quiet neighborhood offers the space and low-traffic side streets that are often hard to come by in a city, making it the perfect place if you’re looking to get away from the hustle while still maintaining a decent commute to work in the DMV area. You’re likely to see kids gathered at the skate park, residents taking a stroll on the neighborhood’s large stretches of green, and neighbors out in their yards perfecting their landscaping.

While Langdon is a notoriously quiet area, there is one way it deviates from that norm. Langdon is home to Washington D.C.’s largest nightclub venue, Echostage. DJs and performers from all over the world converge at this venue, making it easy enough to dance the night away. And with a few brew pubs nearby, Langdon is a solid option for a Friday night out in the District.

Langdon Park sits right in the heart of the neighborhood, and it’s a great place for residents to wind down on the weekends. Complete with a skateboard park, an amphitheater, a community pool, and more, there’s plenty to do to stay active. And the community feel of Langdon isn’t confined to just the park. The neighborhood hosts a local library, community garden, and paved paths, making it a great residential oasis within D.C.

Thanks to the off-street parking, many Langdon residents have a car to get around, but traffic can test your patience at peak hours. For those who would prefer to take public transportation, the neighborhood sits about a 20-minute walk from the nearest Red Line station and is serviced by several buses.
