Gaithersburg has it all. We're home to an excitingly diverse population. Our businesses range from world renowned technology companies to family-owned service providers. We've preserved the charm of a bygone era in our Olde Towne commercial and residential areas, and we're also home to the Kentlands, one of the first new urbanism neighborhoods, built in the early 1990's. In our new urban communities you'll find a mix of housing types in a pedestrian friendly environment, close to schools, shopping and other exciting diversions.
The Montgomery Agricultural Reserve lies just north of the City, making it possible to visit local farmers and artisans who live in this unique protected area.
Further a field, Gaithersburg makes a great jumping off point to explore the nation's capital. Washington is just 30 minutes away by car. Or better yet, use the world class Metro subway system that ends in Gaithersburg to travel throughout the D.C. metropolitan region. The surrounding Maryland and Virginia countryside offers many Civil War sites to explore. And where else will you find Atlantic beach resorts, the mountains of the Shenandoah Valley and the ski areas of Western Maryland and Pennsylvania, all within a three-hour drive?
