Pros and Cons of Hackathon Spaces in Washington DC

  • Not a foodie city
    You are less likely to find an out-of-this-world meal in Washington DC as you might in some other places. Although there is nothing wrong with the food here, the selection is said to be a bit sparse and there is a reason it does not appear at the top of any foodie lists.

  • High cost of living
    One thing you will notice about Washington DC is that it can be expensive to shop here and you can expect to spend more on most things in this city. Unless you are coming from another big city and are used to the elevated prices, you may need to adjust your budget.

  • Mosquitoes and ticks
    When you visit this city you will be welcomed not only by the residents but by the bugs too. Not only mosquitoes like to live here but ticks, fleas and other pests as well. They can make it unpleasant to spend time outdoors, so be aware of this if you are planning to be outside a lot.
