Downtown Silver Spring features shops, restaurants, and cafes
The Silver Spring Metro stop is an easy walk to the AFI Silver Theatre, Fillmore Silver Spring and the headquarters for Discovery Channel. Silver Spring is a blend of locally owned businesses and restaurants and national chains like Panera and Starbucks. There are hi-rise condominiums close to the Silver Spring Metro and single family homes are within walking distance of the Metro too.
We love Silver Spring for the wonderful restaurants. Thai, Burmese, Chinese and 10 Ethiopian restaurants! Our favorite is Lucy on Georgia Avenue in downtown Silver Spring. The restaurant Lucy is named for the 3.2 million-year-old fossil found in 1974 and linking us to our ancient ancestors. The food and ambiance at Lucy are wonderful! Downtown Silver Spring Maryland is a destination.
Single family homes in Silver Spring are charming styles like classic Bungalows, Colonials, brick Tudor, Victorian and Foursquare. Watch our short video on Silver Spring Maryland.
