Bethesda is one of the primary business hubs in Montgomery County, Maryland, just northwest of Washington, DC.

Bethesda's Central Business District features a dense collection of office, hotel, and residential buildings centered on a metro station. Bethesda is unincorporated, and shares mailing addresses with neighboring areas, including North Bethesda and Potomac. Additional highrise buildings can be found in these cities also.
