Built around a small lake in Gaithersburg, MD, rio lakefront is one of the top places to shop, dine, or just go for a walk around the boardwalk. The entertainment and shopping complex has recently undergone a $30-million renovation including a new boardwalk and more.

Catch a movie at the AMC Loews Rio Cinemas located in the heart of the downtown center. Then, have sizzling fajitas at Uncle Julio’s Mexican Restaurant or made-from-scratch American dishes at Copper Canyon Grill. Stroll along the waterfront, soak in the scenery and wander into boutiques like South Moon Under, Francescas, and White House Black Market.

Make memories on the paddle boats and The Carousel presented by Adventist HealthCare Shady Grove Medical Center. With more than 50 choices for shopping, dining and entertainment, rio provides excitement for the whole family!
