Bethesda /Chevy Chase/Kensington

Discover the Bethesda – Chevy Chase and Kensington area!
Bethesda is a thriving urban district comprised of nearly 200 restaurants, two live theatres, 20 art galleries and great shopping. Additionally, as home of the National Institutes of Health, National Library of Medicine and the National Naval Medical Center, it is one of the leading biomedical research centers. Chevy Chase is also home to the National 4-H Center which hosts the National Science Bowl annually in either late April or Early May. This community also borders the popular shopping district of Friendship Heights and has been referred to as Washington’s version of Rodeo Drive. The town of Kensington is well known for the Antique Row, which is the DC metropolitan area’s largest and oldest antiquing center. You’ll find an amazing array of styles and types of merchandise—antique, vintage and new.

Another popular attraction in this area is Glen Echo. The town is famous for its Chautauqua cultural events and its old amusement park, the famous Glen Echo Park, is now a U.S. National Park. Nearby, you can explore historical lock houses, trails and the Great Falls at the C&O Canal.
