Gaithersburg is one of the largest cities in the State of Maryland. I’ve chosen to focus on the 20882 ZIP code area in particular because it is the most homogeneous in Gaithersburg, with some of the largest lots and the most open, undeveloped land. I also live in this ZIP code and am very satisfied with the experience.
