The nation's capital is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city that truly has something for everyone, including world-class museums, an extensive public transportation system, great restaurants, and one of the strongest job markets in the country. Washington DC is brimming with employment opportunities in the federal government, but residents also have excellent prospects with major companies in every industry from technology to finance. Along with all of the opportunities, locals enjoy access to a massive urban park system that covers roughly a fifth of the city, providing many great spots to slow down and connect with nature. This city is also a biker's paradise, with over 60 miles of dedicated trails and a popular bike-sharing program that makes cycling even more accessible. Head to the Eastern Market for locally grown meat and gourmet baked goods or visit CityCenterDC for upscale shopping at Paul Stuart, Hermes, and others. No matter what draws you to Washington DC, Lincoln's apartment communities around the city have everything you need to enjoy it all.
