Downtown Silver Spring has become one of the DC area’s most popular, fun, and diverse neighborhoods, attracting young professionals and families eager to live in a highly walkable community just over the border from the DC city line. You can easily hop on the MARC Train, Metro, or Metrobus for a quick trip into DC, but why leave? With top-quality schools, great shopping and entertainment options, and easy access to hiking, picnicking, and cycling at Sligo Creek and Rock Creek Parks, it’s easy to see why so many people love to call Silver Spring home. Originally developed by Francis Preston Blair, who discovered a mica-flecked spring in 1840 (hence the town’s name), Abraham Lincoln was a frequent visitor to Blair’s Silver Spring estate during the Civil War. Fast forward to the 21st Century, and it’s hard to picture the town’s bucolic past while standing on a sidewalk in Downtown, now home to Discovery Communications, the AFI Silver Theatre, NOAA headquarters, and countless mom-and-pop and national retail chains and restaurants. For city life in the suburbs, Silver Spring is it.
