Locals will tell you how well-developed the city is, with high-caliber museums (and architectural feats within and bordering the National Mall), loads of restaurants to satisfy any true foodie, convenient public transportation, and opportunities for green-space adventures in national and state parks right outside the urban core.

Washington, D.C., jobs are also expected to grow by 33.7% in the next 10 years (a faster rate than the U.S. average of 33.5%), so now's a great time to make a career move.
