I really love Rockville. Rockville is close to everything, I can take the metro to dc anytime I want. There are so many restaurants that have different options of food from all over the world such as El Salvadoran food. There are also many activities you can do! Some of my favorites include going down town, to town center and checking out the shops. Rockville is also a very diverse and safe environment. The schools are also great! Schools such as Richard Montgomery, provide many programs for their students such as the IB program. I am a hispanic teenager and I feel safe everywhere I go.

Most of my experiences I found to be enjoyable in Rockville came from activities hosted in the Rockville town centre and fallsgrove shopping center. In the Rockville town centre you can find outdoor movies being hosted during the summer, concerts, as well as festivals! There is also an arrange of places you can eat at, including five guys and California tortilla! There is also a movie theater in Rockville town centre with the Rockville Metro Station (Red Line) right by it.
I love living in Rockville. Its the perfect suburb and seems to be close to everything. Only a few minutes from Bethesda, D.C., and Silver Spring! There are many resturants to choose from so there is always something to eat. Silver Diner is a classic on Rockville Pike. Its a small community but it is beautiful and diverse. Everybody is sweet. The only reason I knocked off a star is because since it is small, one can get tired of the area. Once you eat at all the places and visited Pike and Rose enough times, it can get pretty boring.
