LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO DO? Why not
attend an outdoor concert or stop by a farmers market to pick
up a picnic before heading out to one of Montgomery County’s
many parks and playgrounds? Whatever you choose, there are
plenty of options and places to play year-round.
World-class drama, music and other arts and entertainment
are available at numerous locations throughout the county.
The Music Center at Strathmore in North Bethesda and

Imagination Stage, are located within the Bethesda area.
Bethesda, Rockville and Silver Spring each sponsor many
events and festivals each year, including summer concerts
and movies, art shows and theatrical performances.
Those who like the outdoors can enjoy county parks with
man-made lakes, hiking trails and ball fields; hike in the
Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park; or ride on
the historic Dentzel Carousel in Glen Echo Park. Nonprofit arts
organizations also offer classes in the park’s buildings.
