Do what you do. Make no compromise.

While it may seem like the cold of January isn’t the best time to get active, the truth is, it’s always a great time to find engaging activities in Bethesda. And it’s easy to find a wide variety of thrilling things to do near Gallery Bethesda II.


Find Fitness

There’s no need to seek a fitness center when you live at Gallery Bethesda II since we have an amazing fitness center on-site. But if you are moved to seek a supplemental workout regime, there are plenty of options nearby. Whether you’re into martial arts, cross-training, yoga, barre, Pilates, spinning, dance, or practically anything else, there’s a local establishment to serve you nearby. Maybe all you need is a personal trainer to help you set and achieve your goals. No problem. There are a host of excellent options to suit your needs, and our concierge can help you find the trainer of your dreams, all you need to do is ask.

Explore Trails

There’s a chill in the air, but that won’t stop you from enjoying nature’s bounty, right? If this sounds like you, maybe you should venture out onto the miles of trails that run throughout Bethesda. Walk or hop on your bike down the Bethesda Trolley Trail to North Bethesda and run some errands while getting in your daily workout. The Capital Crescent Trail (also known as the Georgetown Branch Trail) is undergoing some work, but you can still navigate your way through town to link with the C&O Canal Trail. It will take you all the way down to Georgetown in DC, if you’re the adventurous type. And while not technically trails, a trip through the lovely neighborhoods in and around Bethesda can provide the miles (and smiles) you’re looking for in an afternoon ride or walk.


Cultivate Creativity

Getting active doesn’t have to be overly physical. Sometimes the mind needs to be stimulated as well. Perhaps an art class at Artworks is the thing to unlock your creative potential. They offer adult classes that cover mediums including charcoal, pastels, oil painting, acrylic painting, and watercolors. If you’re more into viewing than creating, catch an artful flick at Landmark’s Bethesda Row movie theater or step on the Metro Red Line at Bethesda Station and see some of the sights in DC.

Beyond everything mentioned above, if you just need to get out, window shopping is a perfectly acceptable (and fun) activity in downtown Bethesda. Find your beautiful new apartment in Bethesda at Gallery Bethesda II. Schedule your tour today to establish an active home base!
