The area where I live is incredible. We have a top education system, and incredible opportunities to explore museums and natural parks. The public transportation system is effective and affordable, making access to Washington D.C. and Virginia easy. Overall the area is growing and developing successful businesses and there are several movie theaters and restaurants within walking distance from residential areas. Overall the place is safe, clean, and supportive of bigger and better businesses. I believe this area will continue to grow and improve over time.

Great community faculties. There's so much to do withing walking distance: great restaurants, malls, movie theaters. If you want to leave there's a bus depot and train station so transportation is not an issue.
I am fortunate I was able to grow up in Chevy Chase. My parents bough this home in 1957 for $13,000. The were immigrants from Sicily and my dad worked 4 jobs to support us. My brothers and I were very fortunate grow up in a safe and amazing school system. This is a very close nit family environment. All the kids in the neighborhood would be out side plying kick the can and stick in the mud late into the evening. I am very grateful for opportunity to grow up in such a beautiful environment and surrounded by loving people.
