About Montgomery Village

Two years after the incorporation of The Montgomery Village Foundation in 1966, Whetstone Community Center, Whetstone Elementary and Montgomery Village Middle schools opened to the public. The Village Mall built in 1970 is now the Village Shopping Center situated along Montgomery Village Avenue. Holiday Inn on Route 355 opened in 1971 while the first bus service to Washington DC started in 1973. At present, Montgomery Village is home to over 40,000 people. It is part of the ”technology corridor” where employment continues to increase. Within the Village are scenic parks, gently sloping hills, and crystal-clear lakes. The residential place attracts young people, families and elderly folks.

Montgomery Village Events & Attractions

Montgomery Village hosts a yearly event for vendors from Maryland. The Sugarloaf Craft Festival at the Montgomery Fair Grounds features handmade products like home decorations, sculptures, comforters, clothes, glass products, and jewelry.  Acclaimed as the “Jewel of Montgomery Village”, Lake Whetstone is the beautiful centerpiece of the community. The mile-long walking park enfolds the western lakeshore which goes further to the boathouse and dockyard. These facilities were refurbished in 2010. Now, locals and visitors can rent sports canoes during the warm summer months. Picnic tables are available the whole year.

If you wish to have a different kind of weekend with the entire family, rent a paddle boat or canoe at the south dock boathouse adjacent to Montgomery Village Avenue. Boating season is from May 24 until September 2 which is National Labor Day. Part of Fall Festival events includes the “Great Pumpkin Race” which features handmade and fully adorned pumpkin race cars. This is held at the North Creek Community Center. For those who want to buy and sell baby and kids clothes, toys or fixtures, come to the annual Baby plus Bazaar at the Lake Marion Community Center. Admission is free.

Exploring Rockville

Shuttle from Rockville MDRockville, Maryland is a vibrant, thriving city about 12 miles northwest of Washington, D.C. Being so close to the nation’s capital, Rockville is home to major corporate headquarters as well as bio-med and tech companies. But, the city is far away enough from the hustle and bustle of Washington to have a hometown feel that keeps many visitors coming back.

When your travel plans bring you to Rockville, call Affinity Airport Sedan. Our professional car service can get you from the airport to wherever you need to be. We’re happy to accommodate your transportation needs!

Rockville’s Roots

Rockville is located on a plateau region and is crossed by three different creeks – Rock Creek, Cabin John Creek, and Watts Branch. These factors made it an ideal resting place for nomadic Native Americans over ten thousand years ago and a home to agricultural communities through the 1600s. This developing region received its first land patents in 1717 and officially became the city of Rockville in 1803. It was incorporated by Maryland in 1860.

When visiting the city today, make sure to stop by the corner of Vinson Street and Maryland Avenue. A stone marker placed at that corner in 1803 is inscribed with letters “BR” signifying the “Beginning of Rockville.”

Rockville Today

Today, Rockville is Maryland’s third-largest city and the seat of government for Montgomery County. It’s also at the center of the Interstate 270 Technology Corridor, home to several software and biotech companies and federal government buildings.

But Rockville’s not all business. The city offers several upscale shopping options and even opened a new town square in 2007. The Rockville Town Center is a pedestrian-friendly area complete with stores, restaurants, condos, and the Rockville Library. This is the perfect meeting place and home to public events like farmers markets, concerts, and town festivals.

Whether you’re in town to work or play, you’re sure to enjoy Rockville. And for your transportation needs – whether you are looking for a ride to an important meeting or from a successful shopping trip – you can always rely on Affinity Airport Sedan.
