Crime & Safety
Bethesda is one of the most wonderful cities to live in in the Washington DC suburbs, it's very close to downtown D.C. Good public and private schools very diverse and open minded people!
What I enjoy the most about Bethesda is its proximity to both the city life but also the suburban/quiet area. Bethesda is right in the middle of DC and Rockville/Gaithersburg area. Not only is Bethesda the ideal location but it also is great in regards to restaurants in entertainment. There are plenty of authentic restaurants in this area, whether you're in the mood for Mexican, Indian, Chinese, etc. This amazing area also offers plenty of entertain such as movie theaters and plenty of shops and markets.
Bethesda is an old town filled with history and near major company headquarters. Because of this, the town is a very expensive place to live. Besides that, it is a great place filled with quiet neighborhoods and very friendly people. Students love to live here because of how quiet the environment is, and it helps them concentrate better on their school work with results in better marks. I would recommend Bethesda to anyone I see, but just make sure that you are financially stable or have some help in your living expenses because things do get expensive rather quickly.
