Does anyone work at WHC and commute from North Virginia (more specifically, Alexandria or Arlington)? I'm trying to look for a place in NoVA but I'm just afraid the commute might be unbearable. If anyone does commute, how long does it typically take you to get there and do you drive or take the metro? I'd prefer to drive but I've heard it'll be quite a pain. If I do take the metro, is it reliable? How are they with delays and safety? If I can't find a place in NoVA, I might go with Silver Spring or College Park in Maryland....any insight on commuting from there? I've been told to base my housing choice on commute rather than cost of living because it'll be almost the same regardless of VA or MD while DC itself is most expensive.
Thanks for any advice or suggestions!
