Culture as in mores, not in things. DC is as bland as you can get other then the massive Keep up with the Jones.

That's not the problem here at all. The problems are, as you mentioned, the insane cost of living and the traffic - which will blow your mind how bad it gets - but also the crime rate and the weather.
I lived there, I know. I was able to escape to Houston with a better job.

You're totally right about the transplants. That's how my family got here; my Dad moved us here from KC when I was four because he got a job in the National Press Building. Growing up here, I got used to there being fans around of just about every NFL team - this person is a 49ers fan, that one is a Dolphins fan, whatever. When I moved to Indianapolis, though, everyone was a Colts fan. It was weird to see, until I thought about it and realized it's the disparity of the DC area fan allegiances that's so unusual, because there are people from so many different areas.
Like I said, the natives fled or were bought out. They went south to Stafford and Fredericksburg or west towards Leesburg and Winchester.

Same thing happened in Western Washington except all the transplants came from California.
