Darnestown is a great community to live in. Yes, I mean community, not town. Darnestown doesn't have a downtown area, besides a little intersection with a few local stores. The area does have some great neighborhoods and is close to the Potomac River, so it has a lot of recreational options. It is in proximity to Washington D.C. and is not too far from Baltimore, so you can commute to either of these, though if you are working in Baltimore there are some better places that are closer. Darnestown is an outer suburb of D.C., about a 45 minute drive to be exact. The schools are really good here too. Very safe area as well. There is not a lot inside the town's borders, but it is less than 20 minutes from Germantown, Gaithersburg, Poolesville, and parts of Rockville, which all have much to offer. This is also a great place for families because the schools and neighborhoods are great. It is not very diverse, but nearby Gaithersburg and Rockville are. Darnestown is north of the very wealthy town of Potomac. It is a great place to live!
