Located just four miles from Washington, D.C., two miles from the Capital Beltway and one-half mile from the Rock Creek-Beach Drive Bike Path, Kensington is easily accessible by car, MARC train, bus, Metro and bicycle.
Kensington is a town with a rich, historic past and a vibrant present. The sound of a train whistle still permeates throughout the town, reminiscent of Kensington’s sleepier origins in 1873. Today, residents and visitors alike visit the charming train station for a weekly Farmers’ Market and concerts. The streets are alive with art galleries, music venues, enticing restaurants, eclectic gift shops and antique stores. On the edges of the vibrant business district are beautiful 19th century Victorian homes and parks and a unique children’s library.
