Travel Tips for Bethesda

No Longer A Sleepy Suburb

by ForestqueenNYC

"Suburb of Washington, DC"

Bethesda was once a quiet, sleepy, but very lovely suburb of Washington, DC. sharing its border with the District at Western Avenue. Like its neighbor, Chevy Chase, it was and is the home of politicians, diplomats, cabinet members, lobbyists, and media personalities, just to name a few. Since the opening of the Metro Red Line with two stops in Bethesda, it has completely changed to a vibrant, yuppie infested city. There are lots of new office buildings, lovely townhouses, apartments, condos, boutiques, and eateries. On weekend afternoons or evenings it is a real hot spot.

"Wisconsin Avenue, Bethesda, MD 2005"

Wisconsin Avenue would hardly be recognizable to someone who had moved away 20 years ago.

"Woodmont Avenue 2005"

This street was once the home of "mom and pop" stores. Today there are corporate stores such as Barnes and Noble, a few local trendy shops, some very upscale restaurants, a movie theater, and the famous Giffords Ice Cream Parlor.
