Pros & Cons of Living in Bethesda, MD!

Bethesda Maryland is one of the most sought after places to live in Montgomery County. From its proximity to Washington D.C., to it’s high ranking public and private schools, Bethesda is a great choice! Here are my top Pros & Cons of Bethesda, MD!


Restaurants Bethesda

Has a plethora of different restaurants to choose from. Some of my favorites are Raku and Mon Ami Gabi, both located on Woodmont Avenue in downtown Bethesda. There is also Bethesda restaurant week where you can try different restaurants. Each restaurant will offer various courses and prices for their prix fixe menus. It’s a lot of fun! https://www.bethesda.org/bethesda/savor-bethesda

Outdoor Activities

check out the capital crescent trail which starts in Bethesda and goes right into Georgetown D.C. There is also a bike share in Bethesda so you can ride a bike or take a walk.   And don’t forget Rock Creek Park https://www.nps.gov/rocr/index.htm. There’s so much to do!


Bethesda borders D.C. and has 2 metro stations, (Bethesda and NIH), that take you right into D.C. For a quick commute, you can’t beat Bethesda! 


Some of the highest ranking public and private schools are right here in Bethesda. Take a look at : https://www.greatschools.org/maryland/bethesda/


Here in Maryland, we get all four Seasons. Hot, balmy summers, gorgeous Fall and Spring and a bit of snow in the winter.


NIH and Walter Reed are both located in Bethesda. Add that to the many government jobs in D.C., Bethesda is rocking it with employment.


Cost of Living

It’s expensive to live in Bethesda. Housing costs have gone way up and they were already super expensive. In fact, if you want to know more about the Cons of Bethesda, check out this video where I go through all of the downsides of living in Bethesda. “Avoid Bethesda”

Live Close to Metro! (part 3) in North Bethesda and Bethesda Maryland

Today is the 3rd of a series I will be shooting with neighborhoods within a mile of a Metro station. Today we look at Grosvenor/Strathmore metro station and Medical Center / NIH Metro Station. I use 1 mile as a measure since 9 out of 12 months this will be very workable to get to without a car. In the 3 colder months, it will still be a very short ride.
The series starts on the red line with Shady Grove and heads into DC. Each video will showcase several neighborhoods but if you have any questions about any other neighborhood, please comment below and I’ll put it on the list!
