Why You Should Work in D.C.



AdvantEdge Workspaces has been serving DC area professionals for over 35 years. Each day, clients from around the DMV area come to work at an AvantEdge location. Besides the amenities and community, there is also something special working here. Whether you are a longtime district resident or new to the area, here is why you should work in DC:

1. Professional Community

DC is so much more than the seat of government. It is a bustling town filled with professionals of all ages working in different fields. Here, there is a professional community for everyone. As the nation’s capital, many industry groups have their headquarters here. One has access to events, fundraisers, networking opportunities, and more when you choose to work in the District. 


At AdvantEdge Workspaces, the two locations are centrally placed in DC, putting you near the epicenter of activities. Surrounded by like-minded professionals, working in DC is a rewarding experience, providing endless opportunities to connect and grow. 

2. Opportunity to Explore

There are countless places to explore in DC. Who says field trips are just for kids? Head out to a museum, pop-up shop, or new restaurant after or during the workday. Working in DC means you can easily get to that 6 PM happy hour or show. No more continual loop of commuting, working, and sitting back at home. There is something every day to explore after work, and many options are free too! Check out these ways to unwind after work in DC- you never know when you may stumble upon something amazing and fun! 

3. Access to Nature


While parts of DC can feel like a concrete jungle, in reality, there is quick access to an array of green spaces. DC was rated number one for having the best park system among major U.S. cities, so it is no coincidence that even during the workday, there are opportunities to get outside. A park is never too far away! Take a call, eat lunch, have coffee, meet with a coworker, or just spend some alone time in one of the city’s many green spaces. In DC, it is also easy to get out into nature after work: taking advantage of bike trails, hiking routes, and river access is a great way to work out or relax. 

4. Easy Commute 

No matter where you live in the DMV area, you can access a workspace location in DC. With Metro, Metrobus, Capital Bikeshare, scooters, and rideshares, it is easy and economical to get to the office.

5. Food Options Galore 

From morning coffee to your lunch break to happy hour, DC is full of incredible options to keep you full and satisfied throughout the day. No need to sit in a drive-through line for the same couple of fast food options. Check out AdvantEdge’s favorite coffeedowntown lunch spots, and happy hours for vetted places with tasty bites and great service.

Food is also how we connect with our community. Take advantage of working in DC to meet up with a colleague, spend lunch catching up with friends, or easily get to a social gathering after work.
