Huge selection of high quality stores. Nice food court with restaurant serving nutritious foods (i.e. Chipotle).

Parking is the only issue at Merriweather but its worth it. I prefer to get seats in the pavillion because I always seems to get there early to get a good lawn seat and then people come late and crowd almost on top of me. I wish we could take food and beverages for a picnic like you can at... More

We attended the Jason Aldean concert on Sunday, as always the place is well maintained and has a great layout for seeing a concert. The show was great and the sound was pretty good for an outdoor concert. I have been to a lot of concerts and sports events in my life, but this really took me by surprise on... More

The concert we saw (Aldean / Bryant) was excellent, unfortunatley the venue was not. First off they clearly oversold the Standing Room only floor, there was not an inch to walk in there, let alone stand (can't believe Fire marshal ok with this), the bathrooms are pathetic, mens room is 5 stalls and outside 6 port-o-johns. walk ways getting into...

I saw Furthur here on July 8, 2012. So much fun, so many great people, music was incredible, and you can stay at the Sheraton and walk to Merriweather, which of course, gives you the freedom to kick back and really enjoy the music!

So cheap to just grab a blanket and check out the band from the lawn. Bring drinks/snacks and friends, and its bound to be a fantastic evening.

Very nice concert venue!! The We parked at the mall across the street and had no problem with the traffic at all. There wasn't any bad seats. We sat underneath the Pavillion and loved our seats. The food and drinks were a little expensive though. So eat before hand, like at the mall. Will be back for sure!!

This is the best concert venue in the area whether you prefer the proper seating or sitting on the lawn, you will enjoy. The acoustics are brilliant. It's easy to get to and has a wide range of bands. Food and drink is expensive and do watch what you can and can't take in. You can take empty water bottles... More

The very first time I went to see BArry Manilow in concert was here. It was very nice, even for having a lawn seat. The evening was a little warm (it was in mid Sept) but I had a great time.

I would choose the lawn at Merriweather over an arena any day of the year. The ability to intermingle with other music fans while dancing with my friends on the lawn is the perfect summer activity. Know your preferences and be prepared to adjust according to the weather. We have worn boots to dance in the rain and every minute... More
