Take a Trip to Remember in Your Germantown Rental Car

This unique Maryland destination is second to Baltimore in size, but Germantown still goes large on fun. It’s also big on variety. The calendar here is filled with performing arts events, festivals, seasonal happenings at an orchard and more. The journey begins with your Germantown rental car from Thrifty Car Rental. Just learn about the destinations below, pick up the keys and you’re set.

Germantown Oktoberfest
You might expect a place called Germantown to host a big Oktoberfest. Park your Thrifty rental car and take a stroll through this special annual event. There are performances from German-inspired dance groups and live bands, plus food vendors serving up German potato pancakes and strudel. For kids, you can find rides, obstacle courses and crafts activities.

Harmony Express Men's Chorus
Hear award-winning a cappella tunes from some of Germantown’s finest voices. This chorus has been gaining popularity thanks to their performances at competitions and events throughout the area. Many of the group’s members also perform as quartets, with some performing before Baltimore Orioles games. Be sure to check their calendar of appearances when you’re in town.

Butler's Orchard
Enjoy the sights, sounds, tastes and culture of the Maryland countryside at 22200 Davis Mill Rd. This family farm is a fixture in the Germantown community known for its market where you can purchase fresh produce and other goods right from the source. Other activities that you might find at the market include pie tastings and hayrides. If you’re traveling with a group, fun field trip options include Strawberry Blossom Tours, Pumpkin Harvest Days and a Holiday Open House.

Sabai Sabai Simply Thai
When hunger strikes during your tour of Germantown, take your Thrifty rental car to Sabai Sabai Simply Thai at 19847 Century Blvd. The food is prepared with fresh ingredients and the menu features Thai classics, such as chicken satay and many noodle-based dishes.

Valley Mill Kayak School
Every trip needs a little adventure. On this journey, the excitement is just a short drive away at 15101 Seneca Rd. with the Valley Mill Kayak School. Their instructors offer classes on whitewater kayaking for students at all skill levels. With their help, you’ll learn the ropes of this fun sport and train in the Potomac River — one of the best locations for whitewater kayaking in the U.S. Other types of classes at the school cover calm water kayaking and standup paddleboard.

BlackRock Center For the Arts
Here you can see a little bit of everything that Germantown has to offer. BlackRock Center for the Arts treats the community and visitors to extensive lineups of music, theater, kids’ shows, movie screenings, art exhibitions and classes for learners of all ages. One day you could catch a bluegrass band. The next? You could see a comedy troupe. There’s always something happening at the BlackRock Center for the Arts. Save their address to the GPS in your Germantown rental car and stop by when you’re visiting.
