I love living in North Potomac! I have lived here my entire life. The neighborhood is really nice and the people are friendly. The schools in the area are well-known. Shops, restaurants, gas, and night-life activities are nearby. It is a 45 minute drive to DC and an hour away to Virginia.
Great People, Great Schools and Great Location. This place is the 'burbs and contains all of the stereotypes that come with nuclear families. However, everyone is very nice and the housing here is very well done. Great homes just a short drive outside of DC!
