There are so many fun things to do when visiting SILVER SPRING it's hard to keep count! Here are THE 5 MUST STOPS that you just can't miss when taking your own ZIP TRIP!
QUARRY HOUSE TAVERN: A Silver Spring landmark with roots dating back to the early 1900s. A stuffed boars head sets the mood among vintage beer tins and posters. Stick to drinks or order up a burger! Maybe add some wings! Stop by this "dive" bar before heading to a show.
THE ORIGINAL VELATIS CARAMEL COMPANY: With a secret recipe that's been passed down since the 1850s, this candy store blends the old and the new. Choose a classic caramel or pick from 20-plus different flavors. Enjoy some fun chocolate or taffy. You can even watch as natural ingredients are used to make these treats - sweet!
THE FILLMORE: This concert venue is an anchor of the "arts and entertainment" district. A diverse lineup means you'll find your favorite bands from any genre. Be swept up in the experience with state-of-the-art systems. Bands who sold out shows line the walls here. So check the calendar and don't miss out on some live music!
DENIZENS BREWING COMPANY: It's Silver Spring's first brewery and it's growing! Sip on four "flagship" beers made by folks in love with the craft or choose seasonal selections. Pair with some pretzel twists made fresh from the kitchen and plan to have those beers with music, trivia, fairs and fun in a dog-friendly environment!
THE AFI SILVER THEATRE AND CULTURAL CENTER: Come here to expand your mind, view films in the restored grand historic theatre, and pick the brain of directors during festivals and screenings. It's the best place to catch entertainment you won't see anywhere else!
