Best Neighborhood for Lovers of the Outdoors

Editors' Pick


There’s a reason a 2004 New York Times story called Brookmont “a neighborhood that to kayakers is akin to what the Hamptons is for aspiring social climbers.”

Located just off MacArthur Boulevard in Bethesda, Brookmont sits within walking distance of a championship whitewater slalom course, not to mention great recreational kayaking on the C&O Canal and Potomac River. Easy access to hiking trails, the C&O Canal Towpath, the Capital Crescent Trail and Great Falls also makes Brookmont a magnet for runners, hikers and cyclists. And regular appearances by bald eagles, great blue herons and other wildlife make it a good pick for nature-lovers of
all stripes.
