Potomac used to be farmland, and those roots are still evident. As you drive through Potomac, you’ll see white horse fences, rolling hills and streams winding through back yards. Potomac Village is the “heart” of Potomac, and offers shopping and dining. Schools in Potomac are excellent and there are several neighborhoods that offer convenient access to downtown DC. Potomac has been called one of America’s top-earning towns (CNN and one of the top educated towns (Forbes).

Potomac Village

Walk around Potomac Village shopping center on a Saturday morning and you'll get the vibe of the village instantly.  Moms sip Starbucks coffee as the kids run around the little court.  Weekend-warrior dads debate the merits of power saws in the hardware store.  The same Saturday evening brings couples out on date night, late-night grocery store runs and laughing teenagers.  You'll find croissants, bagels, gift stores, pizza places, doctors and dentists in this adorable square, which anchors the community known as Potomac Village.
This part of Potomac is less urban than Bethesda, so you'll find bigger yards and fewer sidewalks.  The area boasts numerous public schools and is in the popular Churchill district.  It's also close to many good private and parochial schools.  Many residents work in DC and Virginia given the ease of the commutes...this is a family friendly, pet friendly area offering plenty of room for growing families.
Fox Hills
Mention Fox Hills, or Fox Hills West, or any of the neighborhoods flanking the Cabin John Shopping Center and Mall, and someone will mention how fantastic the schools are. Someone else will tell you that the shopping center is a city unto itself, and someone else will extol the virtues of larger yards and the deer who visit them. Someone with kids will tell you how great the year-round ice rink is, and someone else will tell you how much they love the train rides through the cool and shady park. This part of Potomac boasts all of those things, plus proximity to 270 and a straight shot (down Seven Locks Road) to the Beltway. This area is suburbia at its best, and those who raise families here would enthusiastically agree.
