Moving to D.C.: Live near metro or park at metro?

Moving to D.C.: Live near metro or park at metro?

All,

I'm about to relocate to Washington, D.C. and will need to use public transportation to get to Dupont Circle in downtown.

I'm struggling with something. Is it best to find somewhere to live in walking distance to a metro station? Or can I live a little ways away and drive to a metro each day then pay to park there? Does parking at the metro fill up?

Any advice is very much appreciated!

Also, I'll be commuting downtown every day for work. That's what I meant but realized I didn't make that clear.

Since this question does not concern travel, this thread will probably be closed soon. But I'll tell you that you definitely want to live someplace within walking distance of a Metro station as opposed to someplace further out where you would have to drive to a Metro station. The traffic in the DC area is among the worst in the nation and you want to avoid it whenever possible.

However, be aware that housing within walking distance of Metro will come at a premium.
