We all love to vegetate on the couch and watch the Discovery Channel; well this is home to Discovery Communications, the largest television and Internet Company. The world's number 1 in non-fiction media that includes channels such as Discovery Channel, TLC, Animal Planet, Science Channel, Investigation Discovery and Planet Green. One of the quirky things they get up to is when it is "Shark Week" they celebrate with a 466 ft shark named Chompie sitting on the rooftop of their headquarters.
Silver Spring is a residential destination and one of the more desirable areas to live in outside of Washington DC. The oldest part is a major business hub and has undergone a renaissance by adding to the streetscape major retail, office developments and more residential buildings. Its name is derived from the discovery of a pristine spring in 1840 that you can find in Acorn Park.
A stunning art deco building housing 3 theaters, The American Film Institute Silver Theater and Cultural Center, is an historical landmark dedicated to the art of the moving image. It regularly runs movies that you can't see anywhere else such as independent features, foreign films, documentaries and classical films. It is definitely not your average picture theater to see a movie at. In the same area you will find The Fillmore live entertainment and music venue that can seat 2,000 people for performances. If getting outdoors is more to your liking then you can go to Rock Creek Park or Sligo Creek Park to do some hiking or bicycling and get the breeze through your hair. Jesup Blair Park is for those into tennis, basketball or a game of soccer, whilst the Brookside Gardens within Wheaton Regional Park is where you take a picnic blanket and a basket of goodies to munch on.
This is where you can grab a free ride around town on the Vango shuttle that is brilliant purple and yellow. It buzzes around the streets continuously, so your transport woes are none existent.
