    "Takoma Park is a happy, hippy, and healthy town. Fitness trails along Sligo Creek, and in local parks make if pet and family fitness friendly, and they close Sligo Creek Parkway on sundays to facilitate family biking. Downtown DC is 20 mins away by Metro, Downtown Silver Spring is a 20 min walk, and the Takoma station is less than a mile away from the neighborhood. You really can't ask for a quieter, more diverse, and friendly place to live...and did I mention it is officially a Nuclear Free Zone (totally not kidding)? "
