Thankful for convenience in Kentlands


If you follow my blog posts on a regular basis, you already know that I talk about Kentlands, our home community, all of the time. Kentlands is a planned community within the City of Gaithersburg in the heart of Montgomery County, Maryland. This is a favorite area for families relocated to the Metro Area of Washington, DC.

Dolores and I are thankful for convenience in Kentlands. We need to downsize but have not found another community that offers what we have at our current home. There are many grocery and specialty food stores nearby. We have our choice of many pharmacies. We enjoy the multitude of local as well as national chain restaurants. Hospitals are nearby if we need them and we have access to some of the best medical care available in the country.

We enjoy day trips and they have become more important since I retired and we are able to take frequent day trips in Maryland, to the District of Columbia, to Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Delaware. 

Our community has Ride On bus service to Metro for traveling around the area when desired. Out of town guests sometimes take the train to Union Station and then the local transportation to our home. We do not even need to pick the up anywhere.

For those looking for career opportunities, there are many major employers in the area and thousands of new housing units are under construction. 

You can easily understand why our area is so popular.

Kentlands sounds like a lovely way to live, Roy. I'd forget about the downsizing and just live where I love living!

Good morning Roy. We have made the downsize move to an aprtment in the sky in downtown Chicago and are amazed at the convenience. If it were not for friends in the suburbs we might sell the car! Look before you leap and you may stay put! Enjoy your day!

Convenience is an important component to any great community.  While public transportation here isn't as sophisticated as it is any many places in your part of the country, I still have most everything I need nearby.  And, with Amazon, and Uber, I'm beginning to see what can be had by older folks, even if they person doesn't drive.

From all your writings Roy, Kentlands seems like a lovely place to call home, and I can understand why you wouldn't want to leave.

Having convenience in life is wonderful, it is one of the reasons that I chose my home over others when I bought.

Friends of ours downsized from a home they loved living in.  Citing favorable economics if they did, they are miserable in their new home and unhappy.  I would recommend following Nina Hollander 's advice, because happiness is more important than a bank account.  A

Roy, you and Delores love living in Kentland and I can not see you moving. Because you probably want find another Kentland, with good friends, shopping, etc.  Claude and I have thought about downsizing, but can't anything like our home or area.

I am glad you like your community. Perhaps a smaller home in the same community will pop up eventually?
