Living in Quantico VA or Washington DC?? Which is better in your opinion?

DC is neither a city nor a state. It is a Federal District, hence District of Columbia. The FBI Headquarters is located at 935 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20535. I would suggest Silver Spring Maryland to the north. I was scouting out housing in that area when I was being considered for a position with ICC in DC. BTW, Washington Metro Rail Red Line runs from Silver Spring to DC, so no driving required.Source(s): https://washington.org/navigating-dc-metro https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silver_Spring,_Maryl...

And you will be working for the FBI? God help us.
Washington DC is not a state.

Just FYI, Washington DC isn't a state. It's a city.
It really depends on what you conisder a good "quality of living." Some people like the convenience of being right in a big city and enjoy all that a city offers. Some people would prefer the quiet of a more suburban or rural area, even if it means fewer conveniences.
Quantico offers a lot to see and do, and is in a convenient location. It's probably a bit more affordable and definitely more family-friendly.

The cost of living in Washington DC from what I've heard is a better cure for constipation than ExLax......
Virginia is supposed to be slightly quieter and more family friendly if you've got that to deal with outside work.
