Very diverse and friendly, close to museum art and nightlife. Also family friendly and very close to the nation’s capital with southern charm and northern feel. Close to the Eastern shore MD, the mountains of VA and WV and close to Delaware and PA.

Rockville is a perfect combination of suburban and city lifestyle. There is a large variety of restaurants and shops, both national chains and small, locally-owned establishments. There are also a lot of parks for hiking, biking, walking pets and family gatherings. The cost of living is fairly expensive, so it’s important to have an adequate-paying job. The area is well-known for businesses and jobs in the medical and information technology industries and would be the perfect fit for anyone looking to grow their career in either or both fields.

When moving to Rockville, MD, one should consider the heavy amounts of traffic. The increase in traffic however, is due to the popularity of the city. Within the city, there are a great number of extraordinary restaurants and shops. Additionally, we have some of the highest ranking schools in the country.
