President Obama and the first family are leaving the White House at year's end, but they're "probably" not leaving town. At a lunch in Milwaukee Thursday, the soon-to-be-former-president let it slip that his family will likely stay in Washington after his term ends so that his younger daughter Sasha, 14, can finish high school. So, which D.C. neighborhood will the Obamas move into next year?
Proximity to a Soul Cycle gym could be a deciding factor. During Snowzilla, we learned Michelle Obama doesn't stay away from this place for very long. Some other things the president and first lady might want in their neighborhood are a nearby Whole Foods, space for a garden and maybe a J.Crew within walking distance. Sasha might prefer something family friendly that’s not too far from her school, Sidwell Friends School in Northwest Washington.
Of course, we didn't forget about Bo and Sunny. One can only assume that the first dogs would enjoy a park. Not every yard is as spacious as 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, but some D.C. neighborhoods offer lots green space and great parks.
None of this information really tells us where the Obamas will be looking for their future home, but it sure is fun to speculate. In an effort to help the Obamas find their next neighborhood, we’ve taken the liberty of making this video that outlines the pros and cons of the D.C. neighborhoods we think they should consider.
