Welcome to Potomac
North Potomac is a census-designated place of 25,000 residents in central Montgomery County, about 16 miles northwest of downtown Washington, D.C. It’s bordered by Kentlands and Gaithersburg on the north, Rockville on the east, Potomac and Travilah on the south and Darnestown on the west. In 2016, Niche.com named it #7 on its Best Place in Maryland to Live list, citing the community’s great schools, low crime rates, competitive housing market, high rate of employment and access to the D.C. metro area’s many amenities. The area was established in 1988 from the edges of southern Gaithersburg and western Rockville. Given that it’s a relatively young community, North Potomac still feels very residential and is a good option for families and young professionals looking for the peace and quiet of a small town in the greater D.C. area.
