Bethesda is ideally located just off the Capital Beltway and is home to more than 65,000 residents. It’s supreme location around the connecting point of Wisconsin Avenue and Rockville Pike offers easy access to Washington, D.C. and points outside the city. Commuters will enjoy Metrorail’s red-line access into the city as well as free local bus service around its own quadrants via the Bethesda Circulator.
Bethesda has been named one of America’s most educated small towns, one of the top earning towns and one of the most livable cities. It is so diverse, it actually has a magazine (Bethesda Magazine) dedicated to its endless storylines. This urban district is perhaps best known for being the home of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Walter Reed Medical Center, but is it also a hotbed for art, entertainment and more than a hundred restaurants and eateries.
While real estate is at a premium in Bethesda, those living there are rewarded with some of the finest shopping in the entire metropolitan area. The location provides a wide variety of housing options from high-rise condos to large luxury single-family homes. Exercise enthusiasts will love using the Capital Crescent trail that runs through Bethesda from Georgetown to Silver Spring.
