We are a mellow, ethnically diverse suburb of Washington, DC with many restaurants, parks and green spaces like the Rachel Carson and Sligo Creek trails.

Downtown Silver Spring has a very nice pedestrian mall, with a fountain that children can play in during hot summer days. There is also a major transit hub in Silver Spring, which includes the metro train, the MARC train, buses for both county and DC routes, and coming soon, there’ll be a light rail train as well. This makes it very easy to live in a city with all the amenities, while also being able to get to other cities without driving.

The cost of living is quite high relative to other American cities. Homes are expensive. Additionally, the schools in this city vary widely in quality. On the bright side, downtown Silver Spring has been newly revamped and now houses many restaurants and attractions.
