Last year’s guide is still a good one, with the best places within walking distance. Still, if you want to see what else is there, here’s a Google map with everything:
(Just so you can judge distances a little bit better on the map above, the White Flint and the Twinbrook Metro stations are about 1.5 miles apart. It’s up to you about how you decide what’s within walking distance or not).
The area isn’t particularly pedestrian-friendly — Rockville Pike is a major road and a lot of what is around is strip malls. Just be careful if you’re walking.
If you’re looking for an awesome selection of beer, friends recommend Gilly’s Craft Beer & Fine Wine. It’s within walking distance of Twinbrook. There is also a Trader Joe’s less than a half-mile from the Twinbrook stop, if you’re going that way.
DC also has a good selection of restaurants if you want to venture into the city (and I’ll have a few recommendations for that in tomorrow’s post) but do keep in mind you are pretty far out in the suburbs and so getting anywhere will probably take a little while.
