NORTH POTOMAC, MD — Maryland is nicknamed “America in miniature” for a reason: it’s got waterfront cities, snow-capped mountains, rural towns, thick forests, and picturesque bays.
But of all the places you can live in Maryland, “Money Inc.” says North Potomac is the best.
The online personal finance and business publication recently released its list of “The 20 Best Places to Live in Maryland.” And it looks like North Potomac snagged the No. 1 spot.
Here’s what “Money Inc.” had to say about the city:
“Primly located just 3 miles from Gaithersburg and 20 miles from Washington, DC, North Potomac enjoys an almost unending list of benefits: great schools (Winston Churchill High School, Thomas S Wootton High School, Quince Orchard High School, Northwest High School, and Wayside Elementary School all enjoy the rare distinction of an A+ rating on Niche; a booming job market; an median income of a massive $161,553; low crime; and the kind of desirability that allows local residents to attach a huge price tag of $656,900 to their properties.”
North Potomac isn’t the only neighborhood in Montgomery County that made the list. Nine other neighborhoods made the cut, including Rockville, Chevy Chase, North Bethesda, and Poolesville.
