The Indian Spring community was listed in the Washingtonian one of the "Best Places to Live" (2005). "This is the kind of inner-Beltway suburb that downtown Silver Spring was revitalized for. The professionals living here may have families, but they're not so suburbanized that they don't enjoy the art films, live music, and trendy food that are trademarks of the new Silver Spring." - Washingtonian Magazine.
