I have lived in the Washington, DC, area since 1993. Once I got to know the communities, I chose Mission Hills in Gaithersburg in 2004. A big reason was the high quality of Montgomery County’s schools. I have a son in elementary school and a daughter in middle school, both of whom are getting excellent educations in one of the top school districts in the country. They’re safe on the streets, and there are plenty of parks for them to enjoy. With a number of youth sports leagues, they can play something every season.

I also like being close to DC, with all its benefits. If I want to take my daughter to the Smithsonian to work on a history report, or my son to watch the Washington Capitals play, it’s not a problem. There are just more museums—more culture in general—than in other areas, and the sports teams are a definite plus as well.

Most of my family lives in the greater metro area, so we can do things together. That doesn’t necessarily mean going into DC. The Rio shopping center in Gaithersburg has movie theaters, shopping and restaurants to suit almost every taste, including my children’s. During the summer months there’s live music outdoors on the weekends. People are very friendly here. Whenever we eat out as a family, we run into someone we know and they always come over and say hello. Gaithersburg is a very comfortable, very nice place to live.rio center
