Brookside Gardens

Reviewed By caleb h

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.

Our boys, ages 9, 10 and 12, has an excellent time on the ropes course at the Adventure Park at Sandy Spring. We bought our tickets in advance because we were going on a Saturday morning and, according to the reservations page on the website,...MoreAwesome to hear this! We love having as many climbers as possible but also aim to lower wait times so everyone can get the most out of their adventure!

Olney Theatre Center

Reviewed By jaseaton - Silver Spring, Maryland

This was only my second visit to the Olney Theatre even though I've lived in the area since 1975. What was I thinking?! I'll tell you what I was thinking: that it was just a suburban dinner theater place. WRONG: in partnership with Roundhouse they're producing seriously good revivals of great musicals and fine classic American dramas. We'll come back again in September for In the Heights, and we might even get season tickets: reliable live theater, easy to get to, excellent seating and staging!

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?

Strathmore

Reviewed By mrdesign - Washington,Dc

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.

Lancaster County Dutch Market

Reviewed By LolaGo1 - Washington DC, District of Columbia

It is only opened from Thursdays to Saturdays. They are closed for the other days of the week.

My favorites are the store that sells pretzels and the other one that sells nuts, candies and chocolates. The pretzels are freshly baked at the store. I like most their plain pretzels and the one with sausage and cheese that cost $3 each. This store only takes CASH while the candy/nut store accepts major credit cards.

Some stores sell fried chicken, meats, vegetables and fruits, furnitures, etc.There is a small restaurant inside the building that serves American dishes.

Highly recommended to visit if you're in the area.

Agricultural History Farm Park

Reviewed By winindc - Mid-atlantic

This site preserves an early 20th century farm, with home, barn, and out-buildings. There are chickens, goats and sometimes pigs in the barn/coop areas, as well as displays of old farming equipment and a small "hay play" place for kids. There a few signs explaining the history of different buildings, the outsides of which are accessible at all times, but the inside of the home is only open certain days. There is a demonstration garden and a gorgeous dahlia garden in the fall. The park has 450+ acres, and there are numerous trails which they usually mow in the summer when the grass is high (but still be mindful of ticks). You can do a loop trail in 20 minutes or take a longer route. Check their calendar--on certain weekends there are special days with hay rides, corn maze, potato digging, holiday open house, etc.
