The resource you knew you needed but didn’t know actually existed (and for a great price!)

New to DC and overwhelmed by the Metro, driving, choosing a neighborhood or what to do for fun? Well, have I got good news for you! My “So You’re New to DC” e-book will answer these questions and, of course, more.

The e-book is targeted toward people in their twenties and thirties (since that’s the age range that I’ve lived in DC). That’s not to say that people outside of that age range wouldn’t get anything out of the e-book, but I want to be clear that it doesn’t include advice on topics like buying a house (I focus on renting), school districts, etc. I also decided not to include topics that could be easily found elsewhere, like the region’s restaurants. I wanted to focus on things that either wouldn’t be easy to find info on or that you wouldn’t even know you should Google.
