Why We Love Takoma: It feels like a small town, with a weekly farmers’ market and a main street home to independent shops all while being just minutes away from everything else in the city. Not to be confused with Takoma Park in Maryland, this DC neighborhood in the northwest quadrant of the city, is a spirited close-knit community shared by residents who have lived there for decades as well as young first-time homebuyers. The attractive location is near DC’s restaurant and retail hotspots but also includes its own set of restaurants and shops. The neighborhood is a delightful quiet green and leafy oasis full of historic homes with large lots and character. Homes vary in style including Craftsman Bungalows, Tudors, Victorians, and Colonials.

Takoma is the perfect mix of urban convenience with the space and proximity to nature (close to Rock Creek Park) of the suburbs. Its small downtown has been recently re-developed, attracting new businesses and new residents. The neighborhood is very walkable and bike-able while the Takoma Metro Station (Red Line) connects the neighborhood to the city. Residents love Takoma and are passionate about preserving the quality of life and eclectic character of the neighborhood. With a great community center, so many fantastic community events, destination restaurants and shops, and a statue of its most famous rooster, it’s easy to see why residents fall in love with this slice of a small town inside the Beltway.
