Bethesda is a city in Montgomery County in the state of Maryland. It's located right on the outskirts of Washington (D.C.), but inside the Beltway. Bethesda was a quiet suburb until 1984 when the Metro red line was extended out. This brought an explosion of growth and many high rises were built.
Bethesda has its own stop on the Washington, D.C. Metro red line at the intersection of Wisconsin and Old Georgetown Avenues.
