Silver Spring Reviews
I currently live in Silver Spring, which I believe is the heart of Maryland since its located in the middle of the state. Silver Spring is a very underrated town in Maryland; it consists of 70,000 inhabitants. To be honest, I love my community, the people that live here are down to earth and care for each other. Everyone here is different and come from different places and have different backgrounds which are respected among the community. I have spent so much time exploring and getting to know my community, from small businesses to bigger corporations. I love Silver Spring!
I love where I live! My neighborhood is very safe, I never feel lie I ma in danger regardless of the season, weather, time, or who is out. I think Silver Spring is so great because everything is close. There are restaurants, malls/ stores, schools, dry cleaners, supermarket, doctor's office, and even an animal hospital!you name it! I recommend Silver Spring to anyone, because everybody loves it here, the atmosphere is great and everybody is friendly. So no one has to worry about being, there are plenty of people to meet. The only negative thing is that depending on what part of Silver Spring you go to, it is not very diverse. As a minority and a teenager it is difficult at times because there are not a lot of young people that still live in my neighborhood.
I love how diverse Silver Spring is. You are guaranteed to meet people from all different races and backgrounds which is essential to personal growth. Montgomery County prides itself in its diversity but not every city reflects the overall demographics but I think Silver Spring is one of the few places here that does! Silver Spring by address is extremely big which can get confusing but I've grown up here and I absolutely love the two metro center areas, Downtown Silver Spring and Wheaton.
