I have been there multiple times. the butterfly gardens are gorgeous, and the gardens are immense. there's a stream on the property, but its not super pretty looking. but the pond is where is like to go, just to sit down and watch the ducks, it's so relaxing.

Washingtonian Center

Reviewed By LolaGo1 - Washington DC, District of Columbia

it was very cold and windy when we visited here. We saw a movie at the AMC Theaters and had delicious dinner at the Copper Canyon Grill Restaurant. Thoroughly enjoyed both places.

Other attractions/places to visit here: Shops like Target and Dick's, smaller shops, restaurants, man-made lake, etc.

We'll definitely visit here again when the weather becomes warmer: eat at other restaurants, shop, and just walk around the lake.

Rockville Town Square

Reviewed By Michael R

It's really too bad. Very comfortable seating with the recliner seats. The problem is that the staff is so incompetent and rude that I'll never go back there. I asked for tickets for a particular movie, and they gave me tickets for a different movie. When I brought it to their attention they didn't even apologize. They acted like I was trying to rip THEM off! They finally gave me my money back, but I never got to see my movie. Another time I asked for a ticket for a show at one particular time but they gave me a ticket for a different time that the movie was showing. What are they smoking?

Have attended numerous events at Strathmore and all were delightful. Convenient parking close by, inside acoustics are very good, they offer a wide range of events, snacks/drinks are lovely, and in summer the outdoor concerts are fun.

There is lots of playground equipment, but the highlight is the train ride. You may have to wait, but it's worth it. The playground is divided into different areas for different age groups. The only problem with the park is that it is so good that it is very crowded, especially on weekends. Enjoy!

Lake Needwood

Reviewed By Travelqueen8882 - Washington DC, District of Columbia

Needwood has a trail that goes all way into DC. I recently walked 13 miles in one morning. the path is paved and in very good shape. The woods and stream are very pretty. Even saw deer along the trail. There are several places where you have to cross streets so be careful. Also no bathrooms along the trail, we had to detour off to fast food restaurant to use the facilities.
They also have boating there, we did not try this. The Go Ape Zipline is fun also.

Earth Treks Climbing Center

Earth Treks' Climbing Centers are state-of-the-art indoor climbing gyms located in Columbia, Timonium and Rockville, MD. Each climbing gym is among the largest in the country, with plenty of climbing for every ability level.

Reviewed By Aspen E - Washington DC, District of Columbia

This is a huge gym with great amenities. The walls are well layed out and there is a ton of space for bouldering. The only thing I don't like is that most of the climbs are on slanted walls, which are not good for beginners.

Meadowside Nature Center

This is a place I took my children and now my grandchildren. It's packed with things for kids from 3 -23. The addition of caged birds outdoors added a dimension and the indoor cave and slide was always a favorite.
