Neighborhood
Chevy Chase is a 100-year-old neighborhood with a great community. A lovely, livable place with a distinctive character. Throughout its development, the neighborhood has striven to create its own identity, which has been accomplished through its places of worship, schools, public facilities, and its thriving commercial district. The area is remarkably safe, streets are clean and quiet. From The Bunker: 9 minutes by car, only one stop from Friendship Heights metro (red line)
