Somerset Reviews

Somerset is an excellent place to live and raise a family. Real estate is expensive, however the local schools are excellent and the neighborhood had a more friendly and laid back feel than some of the surrounding sections of Bethesda-Chevy Chase. The Halloween party is the best the DMV.
