The Mid-Atlantic state of Maryland is often treasured for its clear coastlines on both the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay, and the township of Forestville is no exception. A place many respectable career men and women call home, including those employed by Andrews Air Force Base, UPS, Verizon, Maryland Hospital Center and the U.S. Census Bureau, Forestville is a desirable community and place of residency for many reasons. With a top-rated school system and close access to the Capital Beltway and Route 4, the township is a place that its citizens are proud to call home. Below is everything you need to know about living in Forestville, Maryland, and exactly why it is such a great place to live.


There are a handful of unique restaurants.

Not every town has such a large selection of eateries, fitting every taste, cuisine preference and craving. Forestville is one that satisfies even the most unique palette, and contains a variety of restaurants – from casual to fine dining. Café Rue is one in particular that offers delicious food at an affordable price, served up in a relaxed atmosphere similar to an urban café. As far as chain restaurants go, Forestville also is home to the popular neighborhood grill Applebee’s, and a few other familiar fast food joints. Mainland Hunan Chinese also is a crowd favorite. It’s located on Marlboro Pike, in the center of town.


It is conveniently located near Washington, D.C.

One of the best characteristics of Forestville? It’s geographically situated in a prime location. With a beautiful landscape and suburban feel, the town is nestled in its own plot of picturesque land. However, Forestville is located just a little over 10 miles away from our nation’s capital of Washington, D.C. – a drive that takes a total of about 25 minutes. The residents of Forestville are able to live just outside of a busy, lively city like Washington, but enjoy a quieter and more private life where their apartment, home or condo is situated. They truly get the best of both worlds.


There are a surplus of great shopping centers.  

It’s pretty hard for the citizens of Forestville to get bored – especially when you factor in all of the shopping centers that are readily available, in easily accessible locations. Forestville Plaza Shopping Center is one of the most frequently visited, providing the community a mall filled with boutiques, beauty salons and desirable department stores. Located in the District Heights area, the plaza is one story and handicap-friendly. Penn Mar Shopping Center is another crowd-pleaser, offering anything and everything a townsperson could want – all just a short distance away from home. Whether you want to grab a bite, get your nails done or scout out some new home furnishings, Penn Mar is the place to go.


It’s an affordable place to rent an apartment.  

Forestville is one of the most affordable places to rent an apartment throughout the state of Maryland.  One of the most stunning options is Lerner Surrey Square, an apartment community that has received 5-star ratings and reviews from its satisfied renters. The gated community has a bunch of amazing amenities for residents, including but not limited to on-site laundry, on-site maintenance, free gas for heat and cooking, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, picnic areas, a children’s play area, and beautiful, modernized apartment floor plans to choose from. Since Lerner Surrey Square is located in the heart of Forestville, it’s also a short distance away from prime shopping and dining experiences at the Forest Village Park Mall. This prestigious apartment rental community also is really close to the Suitland Metro train station, and it is situated on Pennsylvania Avenue, just inside the Capital Beltway (I-495). Not to mention, Lerner Surrey Square also is minutes away from Prince George’s Community College, Forestville Military Academy, Suitland Community Center and Andrews Air Force Base.
