Chevy Chase is known for being picturesque, mainly because of its impressive amount of greenery. From parks to trails to wooded areas, Chevy Chase has a lot to offer residents who love the outdoors.
One of the most popular trails in Montgomery County, the Capital Crescent Trail, stretches from Georgetown, D.C. to Silver Spring, MD and has an entrance in Chevy Chase right off of Connecticut Avenue (currently under construction). Passing through downtown Bethesda, the trail is frequented by bikers, walkers, joggers, and rollerbladers of all ages.
Another popular area for active Chevy Chase residents is Rock Creek Park, which offers 1,800 acres of beautiful woods, trails, and creeks. There is plenty to do in Rock Creek Park, including biking or hiking on 32 miles of trails, golfing, playing tennis, or horseback riding. You will also find boating centers for kayaking or canoeing, playgrounds, and places to have a scenic picnic.
Residents of Chevy Chase get the best of both worlds: proximity to bustling D.C. and the quiet, natural beauty of a suburban town.
Take a glimpse into the past by visiting some of these popular historical sites.
The Avalon Theatre has been a community staple since 1923. Take part in the theatre’s long history by catching an international or independent movie, attending a film festival, or taking advantage of one of its special programs.

The first thing you notice is the sunlight, brightly streaming through your floor-to-ceiling bedroom windows, shadows already dancing on the floor. It’s finally fall and you can’t wait to head out into the crisp air for an early morning run.
