Live in Bethesda
Bethesda is not only a census designated area – it has been featured as one of the most affluent and educated communities across the country on Forbes Magazine and CNNMoney.com as well. It is home to several country and golf clubs, such as the Burning Tree Golf Course, Congressional Country Club, Bethesda Country Club, and others.
Bethesda is a vibrant and beautiful town in Montgomery County, known for its great homes, excellent amenities and home to some of the best schools in Maryland. It is in close proximity to the nation’s capital, Washington DC, and offers different types of real estate, ranging from breathtaking single family homes and spacious townhomes to luxury condos featuring state of the art fitness centers, bars, restaurants, all on-site. These luxury condos even include concierge services from dry cleaning to dog walking.
There has been a lot of tearing down of old small brick homes, which have been replaced with new homes suitable for modern families. The arts and craft style homes with 5 bedrooms and gourmet kitchen are the most popular and main attraction for buyers.
With all of this in mind, Bethesda also has a small town and community feel to it. The Farm Women’s Market is one of my favorite places to wander. It features a variety of independent vendors. You can find beautiful and unique arts and crafts, gems, flowers, accessories candies and baked goods. Sit and enjoy a delicious lunch of fine cuisine or just have a sandwich!
Or visit the local farmer’s market open on Sundays throughout the year. Food trucks and stands serve up some great treats while you shop for local produce to take home and cook. You can find everything from local meats, cheeses, and vegetables to locally made pickles and even locally distilled whiskey. And, they have some of the best tomatoes around!

Bethesda features the headquarters of several domestic and multinational powerhouses.
