Germantown

This community is perfect for the family or individual that wants to feel like they’re part of a genuine community.

Welcome to Germantown

A charming, close-knit, and diverse community in Montgomery County
 
Germantown is an urban community with a suburban heart, as it doesn’t have the same crowded feel you might find in a metropolitan city. This community is perfect for the family or individual that wants to feel like they’re part of a genuine community but still wants to have access to a bigger city. Germantown is a mere 27 miles from Washington D.C., making it the perfect place to live if you commute to the capital city often. 
 
With its diversity, a touch of nature, and mix of residential, retail, and commercial, Germantown doesn’t leave much to be desired. A unique feature of Germantown is that the community consists of six villages: Gunners Lake, Kingsview, Churchill, Middlebrook, Clopper’s Mill, and Neelsville. These six villages break Germantown down to allow the urban community to feel even more like you can know everyone in your neighborhood.

Local Lifestyle

Germantown is an incredibly diverse community, and the local lifestyle reflects it. Members of the community can often be found at one of the various international supermarkets that serve and support the local community. From the Korean Lotte Plaza Market to the African Naanfe International Market, residents can be sure they’ll find their favorite foods. 
 
If residents aren’t at one of their favorite international markets, they’re probably hitting the Lancaster County Dutch Market, also known as the Amish Market. This market is only open Thursday through Saturday and is a popular spot in Germantown. The Amish Market has been part of the community for the last twenty years and offers residents great food in a packed house.
 

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

If you’re looking for a place to grab a quick drink and enjoy a walk around a shopping center, Germantown is the home of Kung Fu Tea — the founder of National Bubble Tea Day. This tea house puts an emphasis on the process of making the tea and making their customers happy. With premium tea leaves, cane sugar, and milk powder, Kung Fu Tea makes beverages you’ll come back to again and again. 
 
If the evening calls for dinner and entertainment instead, Top Golf is a climate-controlled golfing bay you’ll want to frequent. Top golf has three floors, more than 100 bays, a bar and restaurants, and a rooftop terrace with fire pits. Germantown has many places to enjoy sports year-round. The Soccerplex, for example, is located in the South Germantown Recreation Park, and it has 24 fields that are maintained year-round.
 

Things to Do

In the summer, families can head to SplashPark in South German Recreational Park for time in the sun. This park features slides, pools, a water maze, tables, and umbrellas for space in the shade. The kids won’t want to jump out of the water after spending time here at SplashPark. But you can bribe them with some of their favorite snacks and time to run around at Great Seneca State Park
 
When the kids aren’t enjoying time with the family, they can enroll in a summer camp program at the Black Rock Center for the Arts. The center offers children a chance to explore their artistic side with programs emphasizing art and performance. The summertime in Germantown is lively and packed full of fun whenever you spend it.

Germantown has top-rated schools served by the Montgomery County Public Schools district.
