Rockville.. things to do??

Hi, my husband will be attending a confrence in Rockville.

What are some things that you would recommend we do while we are there?? Will probably rent a car, so we can have ease of transportation.

Thanks for your suggestions or comments... Catira

Rockville proper is not exactly a tourist destination, it's a fairly typical suburb. There is good shopping and dining, but your proximity to Washington (about 1/2 hour by car or a little longer by Metrorail) should be considered the main attraction.

Downtown Rockville has just been redone and it is a nice place to unwind in the evening. Good resturants/bars and an area to strech your legs after sitting all day. Very easy to find. Right on 355 / Rockville Pike.

There is also White Flint Shopping Mall if you care to do some shopping.

If you want to get out durning the day - Great Falls is pretty close. It is along the historic C&O Canal. Good hiking trails that take you to the river for some great views.

You can always jump on the Metro and head into DC. About a 35 minute ride. Walk around the Museums and Capital Building. There is a huge event on the "Mall" this weekend with many famous authors signing their books.
