Outdoor Activities around Germantown

When you feel the need to get out and do something fun to change up your daily routine, explore the great outdoors! As the weather warms up, try these outdoor activities near our apartments in Germantown, MD. From fossils to fondu, it’s a great time to be outside.

Collect Fossils

Sure, they might be more of the shark tooth variety than the dinosaur fossil, but getting out to the beach and finding treasure is always fun. At Calvert Cliffs State Park, visitors can stroll along the cliffs and search for treasure washed up onshore. The best time to find fossils is after a storm. Day use of the park costs $5 a vehicle, cash only, and visitors are advised to plan ahead for filled-to-capacity closures.

Pick Strawberries

Everyone loves freshly picked strawberries. Butler’s Orchard, a short drive from our community, allows you to pick your own berries to take home. Be sure to make a reservation on their website. You can also order curbside pickup for a variety of fresh products, including strawberry pie, grilled sausage, and more.

Riding Lessons

If learning to ride a horse is something you’ve always wanted to try, Hunt View Riding Academy is offering lessons to new clients by appointment. They offer a variety of options from boarding for horses, riding lessons, spring and summer camps, trail riding, and more. One drop-in lesson costs $110, and special bundles are available.

Classy Take-Out

Rocklands Farm And Winery is a local secret in Maryland. They offer a variety of homegrown and locally produced meats, wines, and market goods for pickup and local delivery. Check out their selection before scheduling a picnic or an alfresco restaurant experience at home.

While our Germantown apartments for rent are the place to be, it’s wonderful to get out and explore your local community as well. These outdoor activities in Germantown are just the beginning. For more information about our local neighborhood, contact us today.
