Welcome to Potomac
Once populated by horse farms and large agricultural estates, Potomac saw significant suburban development beginning in the 1960's. Today Potomac is a vibrant town with a wide range of home styles and sizes, all centered around Potomac Village. Residents of Potomac have easy access to the hiking and biking trails of the C&O Canal and Potomac River. Many neighborhoods are zoned for one and two acres parcels, creating a more open and slightly more "rural" vibe. But the neighborhoods of Potomac are distinct and varied - some more densely populated with central swim and tennis facilities, others more sprawling and private. While many Potomac residents commute daily to Downtown DC, Bethesda or Northern Virginia, its central Village offers all the conveniences, amenities, dining and food shopping options one could ask for.

Westfield Montgomery, the area's largest shopping mall, showcases more than 1 million square feet of space and three anchor tenants. Locals also love spending time at Pike & Rose, an outdoor shopping complex with trendy shops, restaurants, bowling, an upscale cinema, and a farmers market.

Even if you don't have children, you'll still benefit from Potomac's vast collection of top public and private schools. These highly rated institutions provide more than just an amazing education—they also help boost property values over time.

Unique career opportunities
Potomac has always been a popular spot for anyone looking to shorten their commute into DC, Northern Virginia, or Bethesda. However, Potomac also features quite a few career opportunities of its own along River Road. Many Potomac residents work for the federal government, as well as a number of Fortune 500 companies. The Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Defense, and Montgomery County Schools are just a few of the area's largest employers.
