Yeah I just want my place of business to be in a city area, but where I live not necessarily want that. I want peace.lol but close enough to go into a city. I guess I am going to going to have to visit and see. But what I been viewing on the internet betheseda seem like a nice educated, business, artsy place. What are some of the other DC suburbs?

There are many suburbs of DC spanning a few different counties but there are not a whole lot that I could honestly recommend to people... Potomac and Chevy Chase are very nice but also expensive... Olney is a cheaper alternative...

Bethesda, Chevy Chase, and Potomac are all going to be upper-middle class to wealthy people... Rockville and Gaithersburg would have a much greater range of income (but less wealthy people) and culture if thats what you are asking...

There are, by my estimation, more high end boutiques within the district, In areas like Georgetown, and Friendship Heights, and up and down Wisconsin and Connecticut Avenues.

There is still a very high number of these kinds of places outside to district, These would be in areas like Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Tyson Corner, and Alexandria. VA route 7 (leesburg pike) in Tysons Corner has often been called Rodeo Rd. of the east, And MD 355 (Rockville Pike/Wisconsin Ave.) is not very far behind. These areas are exellent locations to open a high end boutique, some will argue that it's a better location then an area like Georgetown because of growth potential.

I know an earlier post had mentioned Bethesda Row, ill go ahead and say to also check out the Friendship Village neighborhood in Chevy Chase MD (not to be confused with Chevy Chase DC) if you come visit the area. Heres a map of the area in talking about Google Maps
