Kensington is a small suburban community located about ten miles north of Washington, D.C., and four miles from Bethesda. The terrific location makes Kensington a popular choice among commuters who work in the nation’s capital and the surrounding areas but prefer a quieter home environment. The town center features a charming assortment of locally-owned shops and restaurants, and the beautiful parks along the banks of Rock Creek provide great opportunities to enjoy the tranquility of nature.

Just outside of town, the Westfield Wheaton shopping mall anchors a large commercial district to the northeast, and the Strathmore performing arts center to the northwest attracts an eclectic lineup of musicians and other artists to its unique stages. If you prefer not to drive, you can always ride a MARC train to many of the surrounding cities via the orange line.
