Overall, great place to live! The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful and the people are very friendly. Very nice atmosphere with the greenery that surrounds the streets and sidewalks, and since it is farther away from the main street, there is rarely any noise.

There isn't a whole lot to do in Chevy Chase as the supermarket was removed and in order to get food or go shopping, you have to travel to the surrounding areas like Bethesda or Silver Spring. It's a very rich area, but very safe. It's a great area for kids since there are many things to do and many of your neighbors will be children as well. The people always seem very nice, but the house you receive for the cost isn't worth it. If you are planning to travel to Chevy Chase you won't find activities to do since it isn't a tourist town rather just a community to live.
Excellent neighborhood. This is a really very good neighborhood. Good shopping, clean, lots of good public schools. Several great restaurants are nearby too! I am very glad to have moved there and gotten out of the city
