When I first made the move to Gaithersburg in Montgomery County MD in 1991, my colleagues in my DC workplace were aghast – where is Gaithersburg and why do you want to move so far out?! How times have changed!

Wherefore Art Thou Gaithersburg?Gaithersburg Maryland

Looking back, it seems hard to believe that Kentlands was just being built and the two things Gaithersburg was known for were Lakeforest Mall and the National Institute for Standards and Technology (then known as National Bureau of Standards).

The growth of Gaithersburg since then was fueled by an incredible demand for housing, its great location to Interstate 270, (the main commuting route into DC) and the affordability of housing.

Kentlands –A New Idea

A prime example of Gaithersburg’s growth is the neo-Traditionalist Kentlands, a planned walkable community of retail, professional offices and housing, and the more residential Lakelands that has extended out from it. These popular Gaithersburg neighborhoods have good schools, walking trails with water features, great restaurants and upscale housing prices to match.

The communities surrounding Kentlands have some older homes and are more affordable such as Quince Orchard Manor or the newer Quince Orchard Park – where you can take advantage of the Kentlands amenities without paying the higher premium.

Gaithersburg Amenities – Too Many to List

The home we bought as newlyweds was in a small townhome community known as Woodland Hills, right outside of Montgomery Village in zip code 20879. It was a relatively short commute to DC, either by driving down 270, or parking at Shady Grove Metro to catch the subway. We lived there for over ten years and loved it. We wouldn’t have moved but for having children and needing a bigger home. Our kids loved the tot lot and tennis courts at Woodland Hills.

This neighborhood was within walking distance of the Gaithersburg Library and the ever popular Costco. We went regularly to the summer concerts for kids at the City Hall Park Pavilion and played in the playground there. Olde Towne Gaithersburg offers a Labor Day Parade with marching bands and floats and the Olde Towne Street Festival, great for young and old alike. There are a multitude of parks with loads of activities. For example Seneca Creek State Park offers fishing and recreation in the summer and the Winter Lights display in December.
