Diverse population, hopping downtown and convenient infrastructure help make this city a great place.

Along the northern border of Washington, D.C., sits the city of Silver Spring, Maryland. This gem of a city has all the entertainment and arts you expect to find in a major city, without all of the congestion and issues that usually go with city living. A Silver Spring neighborhood feels more like the suburbs, with quiet streets and plenty of space. Silver Spring sits on the southern border of Montgomery County but is only 6.2 miles from the heart of Washington, D.C. and often feels like an extension of the nation's capital.

Silver Spring has become a thriving suburb of Washington DC. With its large population, diverse culture and global restaurants, as well as sophisticated arts and entertainment district - this is a prime location for affordable suburban living with all the amenities of an urban environment.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The city's livability is enhanced by its quiet residential areas.

The area of Silver Spring that is still residential feels like what it was intended to be: a quiet suburb away from the noise and hassle of urban life.

The city’s downtown area has undergone dramatic improvements in recent years, with the advent of the Arts and Entertainment District designation, the development of the downtown Silver Spring shopping and entertainment destination, the American Film Institute’s renovation of the historic Silver Theater, and the opening of the Fillmore Silver Spring music venue.

The city’s infrastructure includes easy access to three airports and good public transportation. It is expected to improve even more with the construction of the Purple Line that will put more than 100,000 people within an easy walk to commuter rail, Rodriguez says. The city’s plentiful parks are another plus, particularly Rock Creek Park and Sligo Creek Park. A charming new library has just opened.

THE LIFESTYLE

New arts and culture can be explored.

Splash in the interactive fountain, stroll through the park, sample the best international cuisine, see a classic film in a world-famous theater. Silver Spring, Md., may be just 6 miles from the nation’s capital, but in terms of lifestyle, it feels miles away.
