The city of Gaithersburg, MD is located in Montgomery County, Maryland. It was incorporated in 1878 as a town and again in 1968 as a city, and it is currently the fourth largest incorporated city in the state, after Baltimore, Frederick and Rockville. Gaithersburg is considered to be a primary suburb of DC and a major city of the Washington-Arlington-Alexandria metropolitan area. It is divided into two sections, east and west, with Interstate 270 as the line of separation.
The eastern district is older and includes the historic business section called "Olde Towne." Here you will find Lakeforest Mall, City Hall and Bohrer Park and recreation center. Popular restaurants in the city are the Bonefish Grill, Yoyogi Sushi and Coastal Flats for steak and seafood. Neighborhood night clubs include the iRock Karaoke Lounge and the Shisha Lounge. The city's west side offers upscale residential neighborhoods designed according to principles of New Urbanism with attractive homes, apartment buildings and condo complexes. This section includes the celebrated Kentlands community, the Lakelands community and the popular shopping and business section of Washingtonian Center.
Two more New Urbanism communities are being built, the Watkins Mill Town Center area and the expansive "Science City." Government agencies and companies located in Gaithersburg just west of Route I-270 include the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Leidos (formerly Lockheed Martin), Sodexo, Adventist HealthCare and Emergent BioSolutions.
Frederick Avenue runs north-south through the city, connecting it to Frederick, Rockville, MD and Washington, DC. Interstate 270 runs parallel to Frederick Avenue as a connection with the Capital Beltway. Route I-370 initiates in Gaithersburg as part of the Intercounty Connector, which is a toll roadway linking with I-95 close to Laurel. Gaithersburg's connecting point with the Washington Metro is Shady Grove station just beyond the city limits.
