Chevy Chase borders the Upper Northwest DC neighborhood, and embodies small town Americana with picturesque homes and tree-lined streets. This high-end suburb is replete with green lawns and sleepy streets, and provides a refuge from bustling city life. It is a welcoming, family-friendly locale with a quaint downtown that supplies devoted locals with everyday necessities without “selling out” to name-brand retailers. If big boxes are your thing, nearby neighborhoods in the District can fill the void.
This quiet enclave is home to wealthy professionals and dual income families, many of whom work in downtown DC, Bethesda, or Northern Virginia. The locals are friendly and the sense of community is fostered with summer barbecues, Easter egg hunts, and Halloween parades.
This quiet suburb boasts tree-lined streets with shaded sidewalks, manicured lawns with well-maintained bungalows, colonials, and Tudor style homes. The homes were mostly built in the early 1900s. There are some condos available near the small commercial district but, for the most part, Chevy Chase looks like any other affluent suburb found near most cities.
