Moving to the D.C. Area, Need advice
User BrianaHartzell (Opens a pop up layer) Frequent Contributor
This is a question submitted in a comment on the PCS blog and I wanted to re-post it here to see if anyone can share some insight that might solve some of ginurse's concerns. Here are her concerns: We are moving from Hawaii to the D.C. area in August/Sept. Unfortunately, I am going to be working at Ft Belvoir and my husband is going to be working at Walter Reed Medical Center. We have to children (2 yrs and a 1st Grader). Does anybody know of a good location that won't be terrible for us to get to work and be able to drop kids off at daycares/schools? Also, does anybody have any good advice for before/after school care and daycare options? I am really stressed about the commuting, trying to get the kids taken care of and still have some quality family time. Thanks for you advice - ginurse

Suggest you try to locate near public transportation; it's much easier than driving. For years I commuted from outside Annapolis, MD to downtown DC and saved money and aggravation.
Now . . . how do I start a new post. Help, somebody, please?
