Chevy Chase MD

Pedestrian-friendly neighborhood

Chevy Chase is the name of both a town and an unincorporated census-designated place that straddle the northwest border of Washington, D.C., and Montgomery County, Maryland, United States. Several settlements in the same area of Montgomery County and one neighborhood of Washington include Chevy Chase in their names. These villages, the town, and the CDP share a common history and together form a larger community colloquially referred to as Chevy Chase.

Primarily a residential suburb, Chevy Chase adjoins Friendship Heights, a popular shopping district. It is the home of the Chevy Chase Club and Columbia Country Club, private clubs whose members include many prominent politicians and Washingtonians.

Chevy Chase was noted as “the most educated town in America” in a study conducted by the Stanford Graduate School of Education, with 93.5 percent of adult residents having at least a bachelor’s degree.

Chevy Chase is served by the Montgomery County Public Schools. Residents of Chevy Chase are zoned to Somerset, Chevy Chase or North Chevy Chase Elementary School, which feed into Silver Creek Middle School, Westland Middle School and Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School. Private schools in Chevy Chase include Concord Hill School, Oneness-Family School, and Blessed Sacrament School.

Rochambeau French International School formerly had a campus in Chevy Chase.


The location

Learn about Chevy Chase MD

For decades, a six-block stretch of Wisconsin Avenue in Friendship Heights and Chevy Chase contained the only concentration of traditional department stores at least partially in Washington, D.C. Two of these closed in 2020: the Lord & Taylor and Neiman Marcus stores, both of which were in D.C.[18] As of 2022, two department stores remain, both on the Maryland side: a freestanding Saks Fifth Avenue and a Bloomingdale's in Wisconsin Place, which also includes a Whole Foods Market, boutiques, and residential and office space.
