A fabulous county in Pennsylvania. One of the richest, and part of the Delaware Valley, less commonly known as the Philadelphia metro area. Montgomery, likes its nearby sister Bucks, is both rural and suburban with many similar characteristics. Its biggest claim to fame is that it is the only county in the state of PA with the greatest amount of retail. Yeah it beats out Pittsburgh, big time. Have you ever heard of King of Prussia? It is the largest mall in the country based on actual retail space. The Mall of America is only larger since it has an amusement park. And the Philadelphia Premium Outlets are just up the road. Suburban Square, the oldest outdoor shopping center in the country is found in Ardmore, along the ritzy Main Line. But shopping isn't the only notable thing about Montgomery. It has acres of open space, and the vast Green Lane Reservoir Park up north in the Upper Perkiomen Valley. Not to mention the fact that Montco (its abbreviation by locals) is one of the fastest growing counties in PA. Plus its got heavily-rooted German heritage, as noted in the towns of Schwenksville, Lederach and Souderton. The only drawbacks might be the oppressive congestion on Rt. 422 and extensive suburban sprawl. But who cares! Montgomery County has it all!
Those who live in Montgomery County are blessed with some of the best shopping in the U.S. and a stellar quality of life.

usually rich upper class families make up this sophisticated part of maryland... some lower class parts are included, but only to keep it "diverse." schools such as whitman, churchill, and WJ are prime examples of the type of people in moco.

A county in Maryland located in close proximity to Washington, D.C. and serves as it's suburbia.
Montgomery County has consistently been ranked one of the richest counties in the Country and it's wealth can be seen by taking a drive; million (usually several million) dollar homes are prevalent throughout the county. It isn't unusual to drive past a high school and see BMWs, Mercedes, Lexus, and Audis parked in the student lot.

The girls in Montgomery County are some of the most beautiful, intelligent, and sophisticated women mostly due to the face that their parents typically hold high-power jobs or are involved in politics.

Montgomery County is beautiful, affluent, and elitist so don't expect to receive a warm welcome if you have moved in from out of state - the residents are all rich and powerful and they know it.
Wow, that girl must be from Montgomery County, she got a full scholarship to Georgetown and just got a boob job.

One of the richest counties in the country. The amount of wealth in this county (including Howard) makes Maryland one of the richest states in the country as well. Home to the white, rich, preps, country clubs, yacht clubs, beautiful beaches, politicians and mult-million business owners. Has the best school system in the nation, and very high test scores. Parents mostly put their kids in the prep schools but the public schools resemble so much of the prep schools you cant tell the difference. Most residents are politicians, CEO's, lawyers or doctors.
