Silver Spring has many entertainment options that are attractive to people of all ages and cultural backgrounds. SOECA activists played critical role in development of a human-centered Silver Spring Downtown. Many colorful restaurants and cafés, food and crafts market, live music, and events on Civic and Ellsworth Plaza are just blocks away. There is art cinema, various music events, group singing, theater and dance. To relax and recharge, visit one of local body-mind studios or fitness clubs.
