The Perfect Getaway

Unfortunately, not everyone has enough flexibility in their schedule to take a full week off from work to go away on a lavish summer vacation. That doesn’t mean they can’t get out for a weekend and enjoy a one-day staycation. This is a way to take a fun-filled day trip and explore local attractions, or just enjoy the comfort of what your own home has to offer. Polinger’s communities are located in just the right area for a much-needed and well-deserved staycation. Even the community amenities offer the perfect setting to unwind and feel just like you’re kicking your feet up in paradise.


While planning for your ideal staycation, note that 4000 Massachusetts’ is located right in Northwest, Washington, D.C. and is therefore surrounded by landmarks, such as the Washington Cathedral, American University, US Naval Observatory, Glover-Archbold Park, and the Vice President’s home among many more.
