Brigitte Oertel: “Potomac is ideally located for driving downtown as well as out into the country. It has maintained its rural character which is what distinguishes it from other nearby communities. For recreation, there are many parks with tennis courts, soccer and baseball fields and playgrounds, and for hikers and bikers Great Falls Park and the C&O Canal are only a few miles away. Stores are just minutes away in Bethesda and Rockville and the Strathmore Music Center and Glen Echo Park offer a variety of programs in music and art.”

H. David Meyers: “Potomac is all about the wonderful people who live here. I’ve lived here more than 30 years and I love the diversity, the opportunities for interesting and intellectual conversations and the wealth of activities in our region from classical music to sports to politics. We are fortunate to have the Potomac Village gathering place near Starbucks!”

I have lived and traveled the world reporting for the United Press International, very often in war-torn countries. We came back here because it is a beautiful and peaceful place to live. We are very happy here.”

Violetta, Adam and Alexander Bazyluk: “We moved to Potomac 5 years ago and found that is it a perfect place in the woods close to the city,” says Violetta. “We even back up to a stream. We like everything about living here in Potomac. The schools are also great and we have a wonderful community.” Adam says, “I like fishing for catfish in the Potomac River near the Canal. It’s really fun!” Alex says, “I went to Calleva Camp this summer and they took us swimming in the rapids! It was the best!”
