As a suburb of Washington, D.C., Downtown Silver Spring isn't quite a concrete jungle, but you certainly won't find much natural terrain on these city streets. Thankfully, there are a few trees throughout the neighborhood, but not enough to provide much shade on those hot summer days. Thankfully, Silver Spring does have plenty of well-maintained sidewalks so you and Fido won't have to share the roadways with the notorious D.C.-area traffic. 

Additionally, this area is relatively flat, so you and Fido can enjoy relaxing and easy walks through Downtown Silver Spring.

The boundaries of Downtown Silver Spring are Spring Street and Cedar Street to the north, Grove Street and Fenton Street to the east, Sligo Avenue and Burlington Avenue to the south, and Eastern Avenue and 16th Street to the west. Eastern Avenue is also the Maryland-Washington, D.C. border. Georgia Avenue and Colesville Road are the two most heavily-trafficked roads in the neighborhood.
