Earlier this year, the public learned that the Obamas were considering Kalorama or Embassy Row for a new place to stay. Just recently, the National Journal revealed that the family has made their choice, and the Northwest neighborhood Kalorama is the victor.

The reason why the family is staying in Washington, D.C. after Obama's presidential term is up is so that the youngest daughter, Sasha, will be able to finish high school in the District. According to DCist, Obama will be the first president to stay in D.C. after office since Woodrow Wilson in 1921.
