Reston Town Center

11900 Market St
Reston, VA 20190

Reston Town Center is great for the entire family, all year round! Each winter, Reston Town Center takes the center pavilion and turns into one of the best outdoor skating rinks in the DC area. Year round Reston Town Center will host a variety of art shows and family friendly exhibits. Plus, it offers a great selection of retail shops and delicious restaurants (from the quick bite to the formal dinner!) to satisfy any craving.

Pentagon Row

1101 South Joyce St
Arlington VA 22202

Pentagon Row is just on the outskirts of DC and has a great selection of shopping, restaurants, and family friendly activities! November through March the entire family can ice skate on the outdoor rink, and every summer you can check out the outdoor concert series!

Bowie Town Center

15606 Emerald Way
Bowie, MD 20716

Bowie Town Center is home to a wide variety of retail stores and delicious eats, plus there’s even a Safeway on hand for a true one-stop shopping center! The town center website brings you news of upcoming events and great deals, so be sure to check that out before planning your visit.

Gallery Place

7th and H Streets NW
Washington DC

Gallery Place is right in the heart of it all! Just steps from the Verizon Center, this “town center” of sorts has everything you need. Great retail shops that fit any style, plus a top of the line movie theatre and several great restaurants. There’s even an adult-friendly place to knock down some pins at Lucky Strike!

Rockville Town Square truly brings it all together…retail, business, community, and residential! And the Town Square itself is reminiscent of historic Italian piazzas. And, for new moms (and dads!) there’s the Mommy and Me program, offering special events/activities for young families the third Tuesday of every month, beginning in April.
