Takoma Park Overview

Takoma Park....a town recalling of its former glory days that reminisce upon the hippie movement of the 1960's and '70's with Sears and Roebuck style wooden Victorian houses lining her streets. A refuge between Silver Spring and the nation's Capital complete with its own hospital, police and fire stations in the most quaint, peaceful Azalea saturated paradise for its residents.

The downtown section boasts several cute little craft, art and eccentric hobby shops. Takoma Park made a statement decades ago by declaring itself a "nuclear free" zone; a town nestled amongst the grand Oak and Maple trees lining the trails, parkways and many neighborhood streets. Two colleges grace the town sandwiched between low income apartments near the municipal center leading up to apartment-split houses and million dollar mansions lining the margins between Sligo Creek parkway and Carroll Avenue.

Convenient with its own Metro Rail (subway) station boasting a unique flavor like no other. Bicycle paths line the valleys leading between Silver Spring and Langley Park...a peaceful, serene sanctuary like to other with the advantage of bordering the Nations Capital.
