Germantown is located to the northwest of Bethesda's center.
Bethesda is home to a wide range of boredom-busters, such as the United States Capitol, the Ford's Theater and the Washington Monument.
Germantown's more reasonably priced hotel options include the Extended Stay America - Washington, D.C.-Germantown-Town Ctr.
If all that sightseeing in Germantown is starting to feel less like a vacation and more like work, grab a quick bite at Starbucks. Tokyo Sushi Asian Bistro is a good eatery to head to when it's time for a hearty meal. The good times don't have to finish there. When the sky starts to darken, raise a glass to a superb day out at Outback Steakhouse.
