Downtown Silver Spring is within a short walk from the apartments, and is one of Montgomery County’s great destinations for shopping & dining. It’s perfect for getting together and getting out of the house.
It’s most known for its food, with numerous specialty restaurants, a Whole Foods Market, Gusto Italian Grill, Copper Canyon Grill, & Nando Peri Peri, and shopping at Ulta, H&M, and New York & Co.
Downtown Silver Spring is the highlight of the area for most residents when it comes to shopping, dining and entertainment. It is a colorful mix of lights and public art, with mosaic tile flooring leading up a grand staircase and fountains that make for fun summer days for the kids. The interactive splash fountains run May through September. This atmosphere is great for grabbing a coffee, or taking the kids out for a fun Saturday afternoon. This shopping center has year-round activities, so you’ll never get bored. Enjoy events ranging from ice skating in the winter to concerts, arts & crafts, farmers market and many cultural and holiday festivals! Some of the most anticipated events are the Thanksgiving Parade, Silver Docs Documentary Film Festival, American Film Institute Film Festival, and- most exciting of all- the Silver Spring Jazz Festival which draws about 20k people each year!
