A mile away from our Potomac Grove neighborhood up Quince Orchard Road is an area called the Kentlands, which includes every kind of shop and entertainment, from supermarkets to hair salons to spa services, a fitness center, movie theatre, restaurants – some chains, some new and eclectic ventures. You can also find medical supplies, furniture, clothing, party supplies and repair shops. We also love that Whole Foods supermarket is there, right next to Michael’s. Virtually all your errands can be accomplished within one mile of your home!
Another thing we love about the Kentlands is the farmer’s market with fresh locally grown produce. In the spring and summer they close off some of the streets every Sunday for a few hours.
There is a city bus stop right by the Quince Orchard library that goes to/from the Kentlands, so teenagers have easy access to entertainment and jobs.
Every weekend in the summer a band plays during the evening, and families sit outside on the square eating dinner, having ice cream, biking, roller blading and dancing. It is a really popular weekend activity that is a great way to meet your neighbors.
Kentlands is a wonderful destination, whether it’s ice cream with the kids, date night with the spouse, or girls lunch out. You can find out more on the Kentlands website.
