Welcome to Rockville

It's hard to tell when driving through Rockville, Maryland, that it is one of the state's oldest cities. Today, this city, which is located approximately 15 miles north of Washington, D.C., is home to high-tech and bio-med firms, as well as to great shopping and excellent neighborhoods. Rockville is also Maryland's third-largest incorporated city.
 
 

Old But New

Although Rockville, MD, has been around for a long time, it wasn't until the 1950s that it began to boom. Today, this Montgomery County city is home to numerous neighborhoods, including West End, where you can find beautiful historic houses, and Rockville Town Square, which is conveniently located just two blocks from the Rockville Metro station.
 
 

Convenient Commuting

Rockville real estate is perfect for anyone who wants to live relatively close to D.C., but would still like to enjoy a suburban lifestyle. This city enjoys easy access to the Beltway and also to I-270. In addition, Rockville has two Metro stations, Rockville and Twinbrook, so it's easy to get to D.C. when you want to. There is also a train station, so hopping aboard Amtrak or a MARC train is another convenient option for commuters.
 
 

A Rockin' Town Center

The heart of this city is Rockville Town Square, which is also sometimes referred to as Rockville Town Center. It is a very walkable Rockville neighborhood with an excellent selection of restaurants and cafes serving everything from fast food to fine dining. The town center is also a fun place to go shopping for unique presents, as well as for more ordinary items like groceries.
 
 

Fun in the Sun

Outdoor enthusiasts enjoy living in Rockville. This city has a number of parks and recreational facilities, including the 120-acre Croydon Creek Nature Center, which is an urban wildlife sanctuary. At 528 acres, Cabin John Regional Park is one of the biggest parks in Montgomery County; you can find an ice skating rink, dog park, miniature ride-on train, and even a Tai Chi court in this park. Plus, its Shirley Povich Field is the home ballpark for Georgetown University's baseball team.
 
The city of Rockville proudly hosts many seasonal events, including an Independence Day celebration and a Lunar New Year celebration. These special touches make Rockville particularly attractive to potential home buyers.
 
 

Housing in Rockville

The Rockville housing market is very diverse. If you are searching for a historic home, then check out West Montgomery Avenue and West Jefferson Street, where you can still find homes from the late 1800s and early 1900s. For something newer, Rockville is home to brand new subdivisions, such as the Preserve at Rock Creek. There are also many condos and townhomes for sale throughout Rockville.
