Benefits of Apartment Living in the Winter Months

It’s no secret that when you think “winter” in the mid-Atlantic, you think of slush and snow. Sometimes as early as October. And sometimes as late as March. Luckily, Washington, D.C. and the surrounding metropolitan area in Maryland offers a host of living options that will keep you warm and entertained all season long. Here are just some of the benefits of apartment living in the winter:

On-site Fitness Center:

GymWhile you may feel inclined to stay curled up on the couch all winter, motivation to exercise is easier to find when you have an on-site fitness facility. Residents of Highland House, Highland House West, Congressional Towers, Rollins Park, Country Place, Brighton Village, and The Swift Petworth all have access to their community’s 24/7 fitness center. Cardio, strength training, and yoga don’t have to wait until the spring!

No Parking Spot Anxiety

Parked SUVOne of the biggest wintertime hassles for homeowners is digging out their driveways during a snowstorm. Even more anxiety-ridden are those that live in a city and have to compete for parking spots. Skip the stress and backache. Enjoy the comforts of garage parking at 2401 Pennsylvania Avenue, The Swift Petworth, Bethesda Place, Highland House, and Highland House West.

Commute On the Metro

Forget about cars and parking spots altogether by commuting using the Metro. Traveling during the winter is especially hectic with road closures, plowing schedules, and dangerous conditions. Avoiding traffic and the weather conditions are just two of the many benefits of using the Metro. Congressional Towers, Rollins Park, Bethesda Place, Highland House, Highland House West, and The Swift Petworth are located three blocks or closer to a station.

Proximity to Grocery Stores

SafewayHomes are never attached to grocery stores, but some apartments are! The Swift Petworth has a Safeway onsite. Residents enjoy the convenience of stocking up on groceries with minimal outdoor exposure. When the forecast calls for a snowstorm, stores are often inundated by the panicked public. However, residents have such ease of access to the store, they can beat the crowds!

Community Events

One of the best perks of apartment living is organized events and activities hosted by the community staff. No need to watch the same show on Netflix for the fourth time when you could be participating in a paint night, hot cocoa bar, or cookie exchange! Additionally, Brighton Village, Country Place Apartments, Congressional Towers, and Rollins Park offer large recreation rooms that residents can take advantage of throughout the year.
