Of all the suburban areas located just outside of Washington DC, Potomac, Maryland, is one of the most eye-catching. Unlike upscale places like Chevy Chase or Bethesda, Potomac is not a big mix of residential and commercial properties. Instead, this area is mostly devoted to residential neighborhoods, and some with big homes on large acreage. It does give residents and prospective residents alike a feeling of exclusivity and privacy providing a quiet and relaxing atmosphere away from the fast-paced life of Washington DC. There are a few other great reasons to move here though.
There are plenty of things to do
Although things in Potomac are built to reflect an upscale lifestyle, the area still retains much of its natural beauty. This is one of the things that draws people outside where they can enjoy things like hiking. The area has a 4.7-mile-long hiking trail that is divided into three sections, giving hikers a new view each time they go out. Or, if one chooses, they can purchase tickets at the visitor’s center for the Great Falls Canal boat ride which takes visitors down the river on a tugboat that is pulled by mules on the shore.
Of course, there are shopping centers close by, as well as the Westfield Montgomery Mall with major department stores and some of your favorite outlets. So, no matter if you’re a nature enthusiast or a shopaholic, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Transportation to and from Potomac is very convenient
One of the biggest draws to living in Potomac is the fact that the neighborhood is located about 15 miles away from busier places such as Washington DC and Bethesda. It makes it much easier to keep work life and home life separate. But 15 miles is still a bit of a distance to travel for work and is made much worse if traffic is bad. Running along the border of Potomac Maryland are Interstates 270 and 495. These thoroughfares are large enough to allow large amounts of traffic through, providing quick and easy access to the more commercial areas that are close by.
Houses in Potomac are large, unique, and mostly private
Potomac is a highly desirable home destination for some of the most affluent families in Montgom-ery County. Many Potomac homes have upscale amenities, beautiful surroundings, and corresponding price. Potomac really is an incredible place for people who are wanting to live their best and most luxurious lives. A good combination of privacy and luxury, you should keep it on your radar if it is in your budget.
