Heading west from Woodley Park, you arrive at a quieter, more sylvan nabe with lots of houses and some larger apartment buildings along the main drags. In this NW pocket, you can find a few deals that won't bust your wallet but still allows you to access the city's amenities. Just be prepared to take more bus and taxi rides. Or make sure your two-wheeler is in good condition. There will be lots of biking.
