Get to know Rockville

Thriving community in the D.C. Metro Area

The Village at Rockville offers a wealth of amenities for older adults right on campus, from wellness to dining to friendly get-togethers, but you also can’t beat living in the city of Rockville and its proximity to Washington, D.C. and Baltimore. Residents love a good excursion off campus. Whether it’s an afternoon of shopping in the Rockville Town Square or a day trip to the nearby Washington, D.C., or Baltimore, you have access to world-class entertainment and activities all year long!


As the largest city in Montgomery County, Maryland, Rockville is something of a retail hub, offering a huge variety of shops and dining opportunities. Arts and culture aficionados enjoy event-worthy occasions such as the annual holiday and wine festivals, as well as performances at Strathmore or the F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre. Outdoorsy residents love hiking, checking out the fall foliage, birding and other activities in nearby Rock Creek Regional Park, Brookside Gardens and the Croydon Creek Nature Center.


Approximately 15 miles north of the nation’s capital, Rockville residents can easily travel into D.C. for more activities than you could do in a single lifetime: monument tours, museums, theaters, sports, music, history and restaurants from almost every international cuisine. In addition to the city itself, the nearby towns of Arlington, Alexandria, Bethesda and others will fill your days with exploration.
