silver spring walking tour

If you're planning to spend this Saturday at the Fenton Street Market and South Silver Spring Block Party, you've probably given some thought to how you'll get between the two events, separated by a few blocks that can make for a pretty long walk. If you'd like to make that passage with a little company, join me and Paula Sternberg from Buy Local Silver Spring for a walking tour of small businesses (like Jackie's Restaurant on Sligo Avenue, pictured above.)

We'll take you through Fenton Village and South Silver Spring, showing you the local stores and restaurants everyone's talking about (or haven't heard of, earning you serious bragging rights) with a healthy dose of neighborhood history and news. Paula says we'll have a bullhorn, which is especially exciting. Whether you know Downtown like the back of your hand, or you're curious to see what it's got to offer, you should definitely tag along.

Meet us at the Fenton Street Market - located at Fenton and Silver Spring Avenue - a little before 2pm, and we'll start the tour when we've got a little crowd.
