Friendship Village

In Maryland on the DC/MD border, lots of shops & dining options
Well known for its shopping options, the neighborhood has two malls filled with affordable brands to popular high end stores. There are rows of popular restaurants such as the Cheesecake Factory or Maggiano's close to the shopping centers which are a great place to eat out on the weekends. Residential areas close to the shopping district is pretty quiet with its contrasting suburban feel.

It's located in Maryland right on the DC/MD border so it's close enough to the city if you want to venture out for a better nightlife experience. The neighborhood definitely has a suburban feel but is cheaper than places in DC and reviewers say it's safe/quiet.

Friendship Village — 7.4/10 Rating (based on 5 neighborhood reviews)
If you have some cash, really good to go shopping here! Metro is red line and very convenient. Whole foods is my favorite place but if you want a more economical grocery, the Safeway and Giant are kind of gross. Lack of street parking is an issue - I wouldn't drive here unless you want to pay for a garage.

Very close to lots of shopping and easy access to red line. It seems like a safe area. The stores and grocery all seem like they are geared to the upper class (in price and offerings). Good for me working in Rockville but still wanting to go be with the younger DC crowd on the weekends. Definitely a very diverse area, lots of international residents/diplomats working in DC in this area.

Friendship height feels safe and a great place to shop.
Its easy to get around without a car. Although it is missing bars and pubs, its a great place to shop for groceries at Giants or Whole Foods or clothing and home decor.

Love the safety and convenience of this neighboorhood - the free shuttle service is awesome. Grocery stores and pharmacies nearby, and lots of shopping. However, not much personality beyond that. Could you some 'hole in the wall' kind of ethnic restaurants (but on the other hand, Bethesda just down the road has some of that). It's a comfortable in between neighboorhood connecting Bethesda and DC.
