I have lived in this city my entire life, and would not have rather grown up anywhere else! Rockville is a suburb of Washington D.C, but has a lot to offer itself. It wasn't until I first visited another part of the U.S, that I realized how incredibly diverse, welcoming and beautiful the city is. Rockville is located in Montgomery County, which has one of the best school systems and community colleges in the country.The city itself is constantly developing while maintaining a convenient distance to natural landscapes such as Rock Creek Park and Great Falls. This city has it all!

It's a great area. It's up-and-coming area has lost of restaurants, new public libraries, movie theaters. There's a number of great food places here. Much like a "city-environment" for suburbians. And if you're really craving that city environment it's super easy to hop onto the D.C. metro system, since Rockville has it's own metro stop!
Rockville is a very diverse area, and you can get connected with anyone very easily. There are many community events all around the city for all types of causes, including raising awareness about social issues, diseases, as well as festivals for just about anything. Stores and markets are very accessible and there are many specialty stores and general stores. The schools are safe, and the housing is affordable. Rockville has people of all backgrounds and ethnicities, and they are very accepting of everyone. This city is also about 30 minutes from Virginia and Washington D.C., where many more events occur.
