WELCOME TO ROCKVILLE
WELCOME TO ROCKVILLE
Rockville is a city and the county seat of Montgomery County. With 62,000 residents, it is the third-largest location in Montgomery County after Silver Spring and Germantown.
Rockville’s housing offerings are wide and diverse. Historic Rockville offers lovely Victorian and Queen Anne homes built in the early 1800s. Rockville Town Center offers stunning contemporary condos surrounded by a walkable town center that provides for all one’s needs without ever turning on the ignition. College Gardens offers mid-century homes with sidewalks and tree-lined streets. Flower Valley is your quintessential neighborhood with lots of cul-de-sacs and quiet streets. No matter your style, you can find the right fit in Rockville.
Rockville's local economy is booming. Situated in the heart of Rockville, the historic district is home to the county courthouse and other local government offices. Once an area that shuts down at 5 pm, it now offers restaurants, eateries and other bright and cheery spaces to liven up space once solely occupied by bland government buildings. Town Square brings movie theaters, natural food markets, art escapes and much more. These attractions have grown organically to create a community worth not only working in but living in and enjoying. Recent additions include the Ice Rink, the Library and the Fountain on the Square. Nature lovers, you’ve not been forgotten— Meadowside Nature Center offers 8 miles of trails and hands-on exhibits. Croydon Creek is nestled on 120 acres of forest preserve and open meadows. Lake Needwood is your new favorite spot for a kayak and a picnic adventure.
Craving a little culture (or a lot), the Music Center of Strathmore, VisArts and The Rockville Art League are just a few of the cultural offerings. Montgomery Community College (MC) has a campus on the northern end of Rockville if you feel like taking a class for a more in-depth mind expansion experience. And, MC has the best seats in town for the annual 4th of July fireworks. Whatever your pleasure, Rockville has it and more.
Rockville has two bus lines, a metro stop, AMTRAK, Zipcars, and bike rentals. Rockville is filled with hotels, hospitals, bio-med industries, and high tech companies.
Rockville Town Square is where communities converge with restaurants, outdoor dining, shops, gyms, libraries, and schools.
