A thriving suburb full of beauty and character
The beautiful suburb of Rockville is one of Maryland’s largest communities. Beautiful creeks weave through its center, and there are a number of spectacular green spaces in town. It’s all the peace and space of a suburb, but with a lot of the big city amenities.
Rock Creek is the largest of the creeks that run through town, and in 1801, Rockville was officially named after it. The B&O Railroad established a depot in Rockville in 1873, and with the connection to the District of Columbia, Rockville experienced a steady growth in residents. It still thrives thanks to its position as a transportation hub, but it’s a beloved community even for residents who don’t commute into the city.
There are many options for homes throughout the neighborhoods of Rockville. Closer to the Town Square, younger professionals will find luxurious condos that keep them within walking distance of the city’s hot spots as well as the metro station that will take them into D.C. In the older neighborhoods, there are many beautiful single-family homes gracing the tree-lined streets.
Rockville is suburban living with all the amenities of a city, plus the added benefit of being an easy train commute away from the District. It’s safe and pleasant, the perfect place to settle down for those who want access but with the perks of being in a more secluded and peaceful area. Rockville is a welcoming community with plenty of public gathering spaces and family-friendly events throughout the year.
Rockville Town Square is the main gathering place for locals to enjoy restaurants or shopping. There’s also seasonal and community events, as well as a shopping tradition known as the Fall Shop & Sale where the last of summer is discounted as fall makes its way in.
There are a number of incredible restaurants at the Amici Miei Ristorante is authentic Italian and wood-fired pizza, perfect for everything from lunch buffets to date nights. At the newly opened Thai Chef, diners will find Bangkok-style food that is most often served along streets and at festivals. A notable restaurant not in Town Square is Fontina Grille, which is an intimate and relaxing spot to eat authentic Italian.
Rockville Town Square is full of smaller boutiques and local stores nestled between the restaurants. Get your weekly grocery run in at Dawson’s Market, find unique women’s clothing at Knits, Etc., or craft a wooden board into a unique piece of art at Hammer & Stain.
Rockville is nestled against one of the most expansive and beautiful green spaces in the D.C. Metro area. There’s plenty to do outside and inside all year round, and residents are constantly finding new ways to enjoy their home.
In the winter, Rockville Town Square is transformed into a holiday wonderland, including its seasonal ice skating rink. For a year-round workout, visit the climbing and bouldering walls and yoga classes offered at Earth Treks. Croydon Creek Nature Center sits on the edge of 120 acres of beautiful nature preserve, and the center itself is full of learning programs and interpretive exhibits.
Rockville gets its name from Rock Creek, and its residents enjoy access to the beauty of Rock Creek Regional Park. It’s 1,800 acres of gorgeous green space, containing two separate lakes, and 13 miles of trails that wander through the woodlands. If you’re looking for an adventurous time at Rock Creek, take on the zipline and obstacle course of Go Ape.
