Moving to Bethesda Maryland 2022

Everything you need to know if you’re thinking of moving to Bethesda Maryland!

I’ve done a bunch of videos on Bethesda -“pros & cons”, “7 things I love” and “Avoid Bethesda” – why you may not want to move here. But this video is different. Bethesda is huge and if you don’t know it, it can be very confusing. So, In this video, I’m going to tell you about the 3 different parts of Bethesda to help you choose where you want to live. 

Bethesda had 3 main zip codes- 20814, 20816, and 20817  so today we’ll go over each one – where it’s located, prices of housing, the commute to DC, whether each area is close to metro, current schools and their rankings  and some special fun facts about each part of Bethesda so you can make the best choice for you.

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!
