A Fire Can Lead to Temporary Closure of your Gaithersburg Business and Revenue Losses

The city of Gaithersburg in Montgomery County has a 59,933 population that is spread across two distinct districts, the east and west. Gaithersburg's eastern side is colloquially known as the old town and features most of the cities early historical buildings. The west-side is a thriving business district with extensive shopping as well as some globally significant company headquarters. Among the largest businesses in the west of Gaithersburg are pharmaceutical company Astra Zeneca, IBM, and Lockheed Martin. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is one of the region's largest employers. The main tourism events are commerce centered, with many people flocking to the city during Black Friday and other sales-oriented holidays. The Kentlands, Washingtonian Center, and Lakelands are all award-winning communities for urban development.

Despite its modern new-urban feel, Gaithersburg's city remained a quiet, agricultural community for most of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. During the 1970s, the population of the area exploded while its official status as a city was only granted a year before in 1969. Today, it is among the most ethnically diverse regions in the United States. The growing city is currently underway with two exciting 'new urban' developments which are connected to the inter transit bus line. The city is also home to a prominent sports focus, with NBA player James White, NFL quarterback Dwayne Haskins and Major League Baseball player Chris Coghlan born in and around Gaithersburg.

The Washingtonian Center (RIO) is a lakeside shopping district on Rio Boulevard with retail, dining, and entertainment for the whole family. 

The Gaithersburg Community Museum celebrates the city's earliest history with a faithfully restored 1883 steam train. It is located on Summit Avenue, just off Observatory Park.

The Water Park at the center of Bohrer Park in Gaithersburg is a highlight for family activities, which is incorporated with a mini-golf course.
