What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Gaithersburg

shops and restaurants at Kentland. we go to many restaurants. and grocery stores. We go to nearby movie theatre.

I have grown up here and there are lots of restaurants nearby. We have several parks and movie theaters along with a walkable lake.

I like that my neighborhood is centrally located to great schools and shopping. It is also in-between 2 major cities that are within a 25-45 min drive.

The neighbors are friendly . The homes are kept reasonable. There are enough places to walk for exercise.

I like how the neighbors are so nice to everyone,were close by schools so kids can easily walk to school when their parents are at work.

To the local playground with grandkids. Having neighbors as friends. You can walk to the downtown to shop or to a grocery store.

All About

Living in Gaithersburg, MD

Did you know? When Gaithersburg was first settled in 1765, it was known as Log Town. This was changed to Forest Oak when a post office was built, and the area was not officially known as Gaithersburg until 1878, over 100 years later.

Overview of Gaithersburg

Gaithersburg is a quiet Maryland town close to the Virginia border, and it is considered a suburb of Washington, D.C. The city combines classic elements of an old city with new developments to provide rich diversity. The area has recently become a center of the technology industry, and there are employment opportunities with major international corporations including IBM, Lockheed-Martin and Sodexo.

Best of Gaithersburg

Check out some of Gaithersburg's finest offerings. There is a lot to like about Mediterranean food, and Mythos knows how to deliver the goods. The restaurant offers 30 varieties of wine, and the menu is to die for. Start with a butternut squash ravioli in a sage cream sauce, move on to broiled flounder stuffed with spinach and feta cheese, and top off the meal with a house-made lemon custard pie. Nothing spells romance like fondue, and The Melting Pot is America's premiere gourmet experience. The price tag is significant, which makes it an ideal destination for a romantic night you're sure to remember. Harris Teeter has everything a grocery store should: fresh produce, good cuts of meat, great bargains, friendly staff, convenient location and a customer loyalty program. There's something to be said for a sports bar with 44 TVs, a diverse menu and some of the biggest pizzas in the world. If you're looking for a night of beer and pizza with the guys, The Corner Pub is the perfect place.

Top 5 Gaithersburg Adventures

  1. Experience the attractions of the Washingtonian Center. Visit for the shopping, the dining, the playground or one of the many fun rides. There is something for everyone, and pets are welcome.
  2. Head to a cool place when it's hot out. The Water Park at Bohrer Park is the perfect place to take the family on a hot day. It offers a variety of water-based attractions, and outside food is allowed.
  3. Practice your swing. Mini golf can be a great way to spend the day, and the 18 courses at Gaithersburg Miniature Golf are lush and beautifully landscaped. The facility's proximity to the Water Park makes it convenient for an entire day of leisure.
  4. Experience a slice of history. Old Town Gaithersburg is your ticket to the past. The old Main Street centers around the historic train station, and many of the surrounding buildings, such as City Hall, date back 200 years. There are opportunities for shopping and dining to be had and plenty of sights to see.
  5. Exercise in style. Not everyone likes to exercise in a gym, and the Schaeffer Farms mountain bike trail provides a scenic experience for bicyclists. The trails are large, and there are paths for novices as well as more experienced bikers.
