See the DIY Del Ray blog post about the home. Del Ray's slogan is 'Where main street still exists.' Its a very hip, friendly, walkable community. Along Mt. Vernon Avenue (2 blocks away) you will find a plethora of restaurants, coffee shops, and boutique shops. Bring home nice meats at the local butcher shop or fancy cheese from the local gourmet cheese shop. A lively farmer's market from May through October. Walking distance to small grocery store and CVS. One mile to metro station with easy access to Washington, D.C. and all that city has to offer. Bring your bikes or running shoes and hit the Mount Vernon Trail along the Potomac River. There is so much to see and do.
