With offerings like excellent schools and a safe community, Silver Spring is a popular destination for families in search of affordable or luxury apartment homes.

At the same time, Downtown Silver Spring has some of the best, most lively music halls, bars, and restaurants in all of Maryland. During the summer months, the full roster of outdoor concerts and festivals attract visitors from across the region. Silver Spring is perfect for people looking to have the best of both worlds: a suburban lifestyle just a stone’s throw from Washington D.C.’s most distinctive restaurants, museums, and attractions. Residents have direct access to the capital by car or the light rail system at Silver Spring MARC Station. Montgomery College Tacoma Park resides here, next to Jesup Blair Park.

  • History

    Francis Preston Blair founded Silver Spring in 1840 when he discovered a natural spring flowing from the area of what is now Acorn Park. The Blair family began building in the area, and by the early 1900s, it grew to be a decent-sized town.

    Decades later, the opening of the Washington Metro rail service attracted new business and brought new life to the city. Once Silver Spring station was built, the population grew exponentially. At the start of the 21st century, the opening of an outdoor shopping mall called "Downtown Silver Spring" invigorated the economy and community with dozens of new shops.

    Some notable personalities who have lived in the area include comedian Dave Chappelle, actor Ben Stein and musician Bill Callahan. Silver Spring was also home to Matt Drudge, the infamous reporter who broke the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

    The arts community enjoys several venues to view and create art, and special artistic events are held throughout the year. The downtown area contains several smaller theaters, as well as larger performance spaces such as The Fillmore Silver Spring. The neighborhood also offers many museum options, including the Meditation Museum and the National Museum of Health and Medicine. If you are looking for something to entertain children and make a craft of your own, then check out Color Me Mine to paint your very own piece of pottery.

    One of the most notable annual events to take place in Silver Spring is the Silverdocs documentary festival, occurring each June. Every year, top documentaries are shown to eager moviegoers with the winner being announced at the end of the festival. Another big yearly event is the Silver Spring Jazz Festival, bringing nearly 20,000 people to this free festival occurring on the second Saturday of September. Jazz legends such as Wynton Masalis and the Mingus Big Band have made appearances.

  • Transportation

    Various highways connect Silver Spring, with most of the major roads being three- to five-lane highways. As a result, many residents own cars to get around. However, the neighborhood also offers an extensive bus system, including Metrobus, Greyhound and VanGo. The Brunswick Line services the area with the MARC Train.

    The bus terminal at Silver Spring Rail Station is a good place to find a cab waiting, although Uber is also an option. There are a total of 17 parking locations (4) throughout downtown Silver Spring with varying price ranges. With over 11,000 parking spaces, you shouldn't have trouble finding a spot on any given day, and the prices are reasonable given the size of the city.

Additionally, the neighborhood is perfect for cyclists, with plenty of bike lanes, bike parking and rest areas. Along with the Bikeway Connections, the neighborhood also has a fair amount of recreational trails to ride on as well.

  • Cost

    The cost of living in Silver Spring is slightly less than the Maryland average, but it is 16 percent higher than the national average.
