Summer is almost here and downtown Silver Spring offers lots of great outdoor activities for the entire family. From live music to farmer’s markets to playing in the fountains, here are a few ideas to kick off your Summer fun.
Downtown Date Night
Grab your special someone and head over to the Fountain Plaza Stage for some live music. Fridays at 6:30 PM, Downtown Live features a variety of music including reggae, new swing, funk, rock and more. Afterwards, enjoy dinner at one of the many acclaimed Silver Spring restaurants. Voted one of the Washingtonian’s 100 Very Best Restaurants, 8407 Kitchen Bar has a sophisticated menu with mussels, crispy confit pork belly, seared sea scallops and more. If your special someone has a playful side, stop by Throwback Thursday Game Night on the plaza featuring a DJ, Trivia, Name that Tune and dancing!
Shopping in Style
Stroll through the shops of Silver Spring to find the perfect Summer outfit. Pick up some sandals at DSW to pair with the hottest new shorts or sundress from H&M. On Saturdays, head over to the FRESHFARM Farmer’s Market between 9 AM – 1 PM for some locally grown produce. They also offer lots of other tasty treats such as pies, salsas, pastries and more.
Fun in the Sun
Bring the kids by to play in the interactive fountain! Open from 10 AM to 8 PM, the kids will love splashing around on the hot Summer days. On Mondays, grab your co-workers and enjoy lunch and live music with Lunchtime Lounge at the Fountain Plaza. Or get your groove on with Washington Sports Club on Tuesday nights from 7:15 – 8:15 PM for Zumba on the Plaza!
