What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Germantown

I don't go out I'm so alone and an introvert what even is the outside. Jk I walk my dog often so yeah that's fun.

The stores are close by. I can walk to the bus stop its right across from me. I like that i can walk to work from my home.

Fresh air to begin with. The park is nearby where you can walk, jog, bike for miles with scenic view.

I like how friendly the neighbors are. I like that we are near a lot of stores. I also like that there is a park

It has walking and running trails and a lake in this neighborhood. This makes it possible to live a healthier lifestyle.

To the park it's big and has lots of things to do like playing soccer, tennis, basketball, and football it's a really nice park. We would usually go to safe way to buy food and other things and since Safeway is so close it is very good and useful.

All About

Living in Germantown, MD

Searching Germantown apartments? Contrary to its name, Germantown was not settled by German immigrants. Rather, it was inhabited by English and Scottish settlers who spoke with a heavy German accent, so the name Germantown stuck. Regardless of the origin of its name, Germantown apartments are an excellent place to call home, as the city was named to CNN Money Magazine's Top 100 Best Places to Live in 2008.

Germantown is a city loaded with major companies. Hughes Network Systems, the United States Department of Energy, Qiagen Sciences and Charles River Laboratories are all located downtown, and AWS Convergence Technologies and JDS Uniphase are north of downtown. All are accessible by Interstate-270.

If you're new to Germantown apartments and want to learn more about the city's history, stroll through the Germantown Historic District. This walkable area of historic homes and buildings is located slightly west of downtown Germantown, and includes the 1922 Germantown Bank, 1880s general store, train station and several homes built in the mid- to late 1800s.

For a real taste of Germantown life outside your apartments, drop in on some of the city's most-visited restaurants. Start your day at Royal Bagel Bakery and Deli for the bagels, blueberry muffins and breakfast sandwiches, and come back for lunch for the bacon-packed BLT and hefty, thinly sliced deli sandwiches. For dinner, visit Yuraku Japanese Restaurant, a sushi bar with Korean starters. When you feel like staying in your apartment and ordering take-out, try Happy Uncle Restaurant, a Germantown favorite Chinese food spot.

No matter what your lifestyle or preference, there are several Germantown apartments out there for you. List the amenities you desire in an apartment and refine your ApartmentGuide.com search to Germantown apartments that fit your needs.
