Around Chevy Chase

Chevy Chase is primarily a residential suburban community, so there is a wide variety of homes available. Though most of the homes are on the expensive end, the town does contain apartment buildings, condominiums, and townhouses. These are located further away from the District of Columbia, towards the neighboring town of Kensington. These smaller homes are also on the more expensive end of typical suburban community pricing.

Chevy Chase is walking distance from the Friendship Heights shopping center. This shopping mecca, which is also the location of the local metro stop, is inspired by a downtown design. There are rows of large, popular, family-friendly restaurants ranging from Japanese (Sushiko Chevy Chase) to French (La Ferme) to upscale American (Range). Chevy Chase is also close to Bethesda, a suburban neighborhood which also contains a charming shopping district with a variety of large and small restaurants, dessert shops, and coffee shops.

Chevy Chase is populated with a lot of families and individuals in the upper-middle and upper class, though there is a wide variety of age groups. Residents here range from retired couples, to small families, to even some young professionals. The town includes several well-known private schools, which is what makes it an attractive destination for families and young adults.

Start the evening by swinging by Friendship Heights for a movie or shopping at designer stores from J. Crew to Gucci. Stop into one of the many family-friendly restaurants like The Cheesecake Factory Chadwicks, or Booeymonger for dinner. For dessert, swing by Bethesda for a treat from Georgetown Cupcake. Work it off with a browse around the farmer's market.

Start your Sunday off by a visit to Meadowbrook Park to visit a favorite kids' place to play, Candy Cane City. Or, take a ten-minute drive to Rock Creek Park for hiking, horse trails, golf, or kayaking. End the afternoon with a visit to the Rock Creek planetarium or enjoy a jazz summer concert at the amphitheater.
