Three Tips for Making the Most of Military Living

April 1, 2015

ROSS Management Services is proud to offer exceptional apartments for military near Fort Myer, Fort Meade, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and Joint Base Andrews. In addition, military members receive a variety of discounts when they rent at one of our apartment communities.

Once you get here, get the good times started with these suggestions – or some of your own! Here are three simple ways to fully enjoy life in our amazing military housing communities:

  1. Get Out of the House: Being in such close proximity to our nation’s capital, there are so many amazing things for you to spend your time doing. You can take a Metro ride into the city and explore the monuments, museums and memorials of the National Mall; you can gather the family and head to one of the many hiking trails in the area; or, you could just walk out of your front door and enjoy some of the marvelous amenities that your community has to offer. The main point is, with your new location, you have gained access to so many new adventure options!
  2. Get Involved in the Community: While your partner is nobly spending their time volunteering for our country, you can be doing something similar by getting involved in your community. Check out some of these great volunteering opportunities: mentoring a child at the Alexandria Mentoring Partnership; delivering for Meals on Wheels in Greenbelt; or becoming a member of the Laurel Civic Improvement Committee.
  3. Treat Yourself: There’s an unbelievable array of shopping, dining and entertainment options in and around the Fort Myer, Fort Meade, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and Joint Base Andrews regions! While living in an apartment near Ft. Meade, you can let loose at Dave & Buster’s located at the Arundel Mills in Maryland. When living in the apartments near Fort Myer, you can go for a stroll down King Street in Old Town Alexandria and take a look at all of the unique antiques. By living in ROSS’ military apartments for rent near Walter Reed National Military Medical Center you have access to great local dining options like Teddy’s Roti Shop. Lastly, by living in the apartments near Joint Base Andrews, you are a quick ride away from the National Harbor, a place where all of your shopping, dining and entertainment needs can be satisfied.

Take a moment to tour any or all of ROSS Management Services’ military apartments for rent to discover which exceptional community is the one for you. Whichever one you decide on, there’s guaranteed to be quick and easy access to the perfect shopping and dining scene, entertainment, recreation, culture or anything else that interests you and every member of your family.
