Chevy Chase is located on both sides the Maryland-District Line and is commonly referred to as Chevy Chase and Chevy Chase D.C. On the Maryland side, Chevy Chase is comprised of an incorporated Village, unincorporated neighborhoods and several “Sections.” What is consistent throughout all of Chevy Chase Maryland is that it offers terrific neighborhoods with some of the area’s most desirable addresses. Chevy Chase offers primarily single-family homes, known for their varied architectural style.
Chevy Chase’s proximity to downtown Washington, D.C makes commuting by car or public transportation convenient. Metrobus and Ride On are easily accessible; the Red Line Metrorail station is located in Friendship Heights. All three airports, BWI, Regan National, and Dulles, are within reach.
Chevy Chase offers high-end shopping in Friendship Heights including Bloomingdale’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and boutique shops. La Ferme, Capital Grille, Lia’s, Clyde’s, Indique Heights, and SushiKo are popular dining spots. Across the D.C. line, many enjoy neighborhood shops, restaurants, markets and cafes along Connecticut or Wisconsin Avenues. The National 4H Youth Conference Center is located here, as are the headquarters of GEICO and Ritz-Carlton.
The Capital Crescent Trail, Candy Cane City and Rock Creek Park are residents’ favorites for hiking and biking trails, playground and picnic areas; the Audubon Naturalist Society’s Woodend Sanctuary also offers a 40-acre nature preserve.
