Perfect New Year’s Eve Getaway in Montgomery County

Looking to get away for New Year’s Eve? We’ve created an itinerary with our recommendations of where to stay, things to do, and places to eat in Montgomery County, Maryland to help you plan your perfect end-of-year vacation.

Day 1: Check into your Hotel

Take advantage of holiday hotel deals, like the New Year’s Eve Recovery package at the Canopy Bethesda. Cheers to an epic night of celebrating and recover the next morning with a Liquid IV supplement, a fresh bagel from Call Your Mother’s Deli and a few other treats.

Dinner at Fogo de Chao

Now that you’re all settled in, savor a meal at Fogo de Chao. Indulge in the full churrasco experience of continuous servings of roasted meats and an extensive buffet of sides. Bar Fogo also serves South American wines and Brazilian-inspired cocktails at happy hour prices all day long.

Evening of Bowling at The Eleanor

Ring in the New Year with a festive evening of food, drinks and a few rounds of bowling at The Eleanor in Downtown Silver Spring. Your New Years package includes a pre-loaded game card for the arcade, a complimentary champagne toast at midnight and a late night breakfast buffet after the ball drops.

Day 2: Explore Rockville

Take the Metro to Rockville for a walk through the Historic Rockville Town Square. While you’re there, enjoy a classic, wintry skate at the largest outdoor ice-skating rink — 7,200 square feet to be exact — in Montgomery County. After gliding around the ice, tap into your creative side by attending a painting class at Hammer & Stain.

Before heading home, don’t forget to pick up a unique, seasonal brew. Stop by True Respite for a Peppermint Mocha Latte Stout or Elder Pine for an Orange Tangerine Convergence.
