It’s hard to tell when driving through Rockville that it is one of the state’s oldest cities. Today, this city, which is located approximately 15 miles north of Washington, D.C., is home to high-tech and bio-med firms, as well as to great shopping and excellent neighborhoods. Rockville is also Maryland’s third-largest incorporated city. Restaurants and shops are clustered around Rockville Town Square with its lawn and seasonal ice-skating rink. A short walk from the center of town, the grounds of the early-1800s Beall-Dawson House include the Stonestreet Museum of 19th-Century Medicine, and the nearby Civic Center Park has gardens and trails. Northeast of Town Square in Rock Creek Regional Park, Meadowside Nature Center has nature and culture exhibits.
