Full of exciting theatres, parks, trails, music venues, and more, Bethesda is practically begging you to explore everything it has to offer. The hardest part about living in Bethesda? Deciding what to do. So we’ve created a helpful guide to the best entertainment in Bethesda to make that decision just a little easier.
Strathmore Music Hall and Arts Center
You’ll be rocking out in no time at this 2,000 seat state-of-the-art concert venue which features performances by major national artists of all genres. Classical music fan? Strathmore Music Hall and Arts Center is the second home to the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and has hosted world-renowned performers like Yo Yo Ma. But Strathmore is more than just classical music, and Diana Ross, Styx, Chick Corea, and Bela Fleck can all be found on the jam-packed schedule at Strathmore.
Cabin John Regional Park
As one of Montgomery County’s largest parks, Cabin John Regional Park makes for a great day out for anyone looking to take a breath of fresh air and see some greenery. In winter you can lace up and skate the day away at their full-size ice rink, and in summer you can play a couple games of tennis on their many courts or relax with a picnic lunch. If you’re looking to get a grand tour of the park without actually walking, you can take the replica 1863 C.P. Huntington train that winds its way 2 miles through the park.
Bethesda Blues and Jazz Supper Club
A historic landmark building, state-of-the-art concert venue, and authentic Cajun cooking combine at Bethesda Blues and Jazz Supper Club to make one unforgettable night. Local and national acts swing by the club, and there is always something good coming up, so make sure to check out their event calendar so you don’t miss out.
Round House Theatre
The Round House Theatre isn’t your average local theatre. It’s one of the premier professional theatres in the Washington D.C. area, and the quality of plays and acting is just as good as you would see in big city. Even better, you get all the quality of a big-city theatre in a venue that only holds 400 people, meaning that there isn’t a bad seat in the house. This intimate theatre hosts six plays a year, and you can check out the Round House Theatre schedule to plan your visit and see what classic play they are putting on next.
Walk or Bike Along Capitol Crescent Trail
Perfect for a leisurely stroll or invigorating bike ride, the Capitol Crescent Trail stretches all the way from Georgetown, runs right through downtown Bethesda, and ends up in Silver Spring, MD. It’s one of the best places to explore the outdoors in the area and an underrated way to get into Washington D.C. On the trail you can find great views of the C&O Canal and take a spectacular bike ride in the summer months. The Capitol Crescent Trail is definitely a can’t-miss activity in Bethesda.
