I love it here, but I like it because it is quiet. Don't get me wrong, there is plenty to do in Old Town.

You may want to live in DC, maybe around Adams Morgan. I used to live up there and had a blast. It is in the heart of the city and night life and you are right arcoss the river from Alexandria to see your children.

Just be advised that houing prices are completely out of control, so brace yourself. Even the "ghetto" can be expensive around here.

While hot girls are always welcome down here, it certainly would be quieter than you're used to in Boston. Alexandria is pretty residential and the streets pretty much get rolled up by 10pm most nights. DC would be worth looking at, but if you are set on Alexandria there are a few neighborhoods like Arlandria that are probably as loud as it gets here. But even that isn't close to being a city.
