We lived there to be near work. Once we retired...couldnít get away fast enough.
The Woodmont Triangle area has quite a few restaurants and bars, along with a lot of nearby apartments to live in. Some hotels as well. The area around 5500 Wisconsin is almost a mini Rodeo Drive when it comes to upscale shopping. I made it a point to NEVER bring my wife there.

Yes. I know that area of Friendship Heights. I used to work there. But that isnít Bethesda.

I dunno. We've been gone over two years now, so maybe some fabulous restaurants have opened since. But between the parking problems and restaurants not accepting reservations, it was hard to put forth the effort to go out to eat. We did like woodmont grill though.

We lived in an apartment in the woodmont triangle in the late 70s. There were nothing but federal office buildings and small businesses like auto repair shops back then. This is before the metro opened.The place closed down at night. There werenít too many restaurants back then in the triangle We had to walk down Wisconsin or old Georgetown to find a restaurant. Hard to believe.

I just retired from a job that had me going to the area on a regular basis. There are a lot of restaurants now, and the last time I was there, a year or two ago, there were apartment buildings going up. I looked at the area as someplace I would consider living if I were younger and single. It is more like Chevy Chase than Bethesda, but a little less expensive than what you would get for a similar walkable area.

Chestertown and the Eastern shore deserve some love.

Thanks for the feedback. Do you think Maryland is underrated as a state?

It's affluent along the 95 corridor, and I think there is some snobbery towards it from the Northern Cities along 95. Philly does not have this attitude, but further north.
Also as on here when ever Maryland is mentioned you would think they should change the name of the state to Washington East. Very DC, Columbia, between Baltimore and DC Centric.

Yes. Maryland takes a lot of flake becuase of Baltimore deserved or not the rest of the state is largely ignored and that's wrong. From the Mountains in the west and the Cumberland Gap to the Eastern Shore all the way down to Southern Maryland in St,Mary's the state has a lot going for it.

............is in Kentucky and Virginia. We have the Narrows in Cumberland, MD, and Sideling Hill on the way there.

On the "Maryland" forum of "Trip Advisor.com" where I've answered questions for years, about 90 percent of the questions ask about either Baltimore or Ocean City...... And rarely, Annapolis, St. Michaels, or National Harbor...... The rest of the state is virtually ignored.

Not on here. Everything is between Baltimore, and DC. Constantly asking about Columbia.

How often does somebody ask about north of Baltimore, Baltimore, Carroll, or Harford Counties? You are right. They often overlook the best areas in the state. Like the places you mentioned.

I am always surprised when I go in the City nobody knows anything about northern central Baltimore County.

Drive up York RD, or Deereco Road and say ugly...without getting off their asses and looking.
