Bethesda is a census-designated place in southern Montgomery County, Maryland, United States, located just northwest of the U.S. Venture out of the city with trips to Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (in Chantilly), Manassas National Battlefield Park (in Manassas) and Silver Eagle Group (in Ashburn). Spend the 16th (Sun) exploring nature at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. Pack the 25th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring. There's much more to do: walk around Cabin John Regional Park, explore the activities along Great Falls Park, tee off at Worthington Manor Golf Club, and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts.

To find more things to do, traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, go to the Bethesda day trip app.

Washington DC to Bethesda is an approximately half hour car ride. Traveling from Washington DC in August, Bethesda is a bit cooler at night with lows of 65°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 26th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Grand Lake.
