This small, lovely park in northwest Washington is popular with runners and dog owners. In fact, in recent years, the 57-acre park has become an off-leash park, dogs can run here, play with other dogs, and even splash a little. The New York Times has described the park's woods as reminiscent of Vermont. This park, the site of a two-gun battery during the Civil War, is a wonderful place to enjoy the outdoors and stays surprisingly cool even in the summer months.
Located in the city of Bethesda in Maryland, the ArcLight Cinemas offers a great movie experience. Sound- quality is phenomenal with decent and comfortable seats. They have a no- late entry policy, so that the viewers in the theater are not interrupted. Since it is situated in a mall, it is an added advantage. So you can just shop around at the Montgomery mall, catch a movie at ArcLight Cinemas and then grab a meal at the shops in the mall. The ticket prices are a bit on the higher side but the conveniences provided are definitely worth the rates.
The Rock Creek Park contains a beautiful wild forest and serves as an oasis for city residents and tourists. Attractions include picnic areas, winding trails and bike paths, a nature center, a public golf course, tennis courts and stables. The centerpiece is a working gristmill, complete with a turning water wheel. Rock Creek Parkway runs alongside the meandering creek. Parts of the road are closed to traffic on weekends and turned over to cyclists and roller bladers. Although the Metro is nearby, a car is required to visit many of the key sites in a single trip. The park is also a popular spot in the winter for sledding, snowballs and other outdoor merriment.
