Driving Downtown - Silver Spring 4K - Maryland USA
Driving Downtown - Silver Springs Maryland USA - Episode 31.
Starting Point: Georgia Avenue - .
Silver Spring is an unincorporated area, City, and census-designated place (CDP) in Montgomery County, Maryland, United States. It had a population of 76,716 according to 2013 estimates by the United States Census Bureau, making it the fourth most populous place in Maryland, after Baltimore, Columbia, and Germantown.
The urbanized, oldest, and southernmost part of Silver Spring is a major business hub that lies at the north apex of Washington, D.C. As of 2004, the Central Business District (CBD) held 7,254,729 square feet (673,986 m2) of office space, 5216 dwelling units and 17.6 acres (71,000 m2) of parkland. The population density of this CBD area of Silver Spring was 15,600 per square mile all within 360 acres (1.5 km2) and approximately 2.5 square miles (6 km2) in the CBD/downtown area. The community has recently undergone a significant renaissance, with the addition of major retail, residential, and office developments.
Silver Spring takes its name from a mica-flecked spring discovered there in 1840 by Francis Preston Blair, who subsequently bought much of the surrounding land. Acorn Park, tucked away in an area of south Silver Spring away from the main downtown area, is believed to be the site of the original spring.
At the beginning of the 21st century, downtown Silver Spring began to see the results of redevelopment. Several city blocks near City Place Mall were completely reconstructed to accommodate a new outdoor shopping plaza called Downtown Silver Spring. New shops included national retail chains such as Whole Foods Market, a 20-screen Regal Theatres, Men's Wearhouse, Ann Taylor Loft, DSW Shoe Warehouse, Office Depot, and the now-closed Pier 1 Imports, as well as many restaurants, including Panera Bread, Red Lobster, Cold Stone Creamery, Fuddruckers, Potbelly Sandwich Works, Nando's Peri-Peri, and Chick-fil-a. A Borders book store was a popular spot until it closed when the chain went out of business; it was replaced by H&M. In addition to these chains, Downtown Silver Spring is home to a wide variety of family-owned restaurants representing its vast ethnic diversity. As downtown Silver Spring revived, its 160-year history was celebrated in a PBS documentary entitled Silver Spring: Story of an American Suburb, released in 2002. In 2003, Discovery Communications completed the construction of its headquarters and relocated to downtown Silver Spring from nearby Bethesda. The same year also brought the reopening of the Silver Theatre, as AFI Silver, under the auspices of the American Film Institute. Development continues with the opening of new office buildings, condos, stores, and restaurants. In 2015-16, the long-struggling City Place Mall underwent a complete renovation, had its name changed to Ellsworth Place, and brought in new tenants, including TJ Maxx, Ross Dress for Less (a re-opening original tenant), Michaels, Forever 21, and Dave & Buster's. The restoration of the old B&O Passenger Station was undertaken between 2000 and 2002, as recorded in the documentary film Next Stop: Silver Spring. In 2005 Downtown Silver Spring was awarded the Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence silver medal.
The following companies/agencies/organizations have their headquarters based in the Silver Spring CBD:
United Therapeutics (biotechnology company)
Discovery Communications (media company)
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (federal agency)
Radio One (media company)
TV One (media company)

Mundo Visto de Cima - USA, Maryland (Ocean City ao Fort McHenry)
©Skyworks:World From Above
Filmagens e Temas:
Ocean City - Pense em uma típica cidade do litoral dos Estados Unidos. Adicione a ela um calçadão moderno, uma praia repleta de atrações e a reputação de melhor lugar dos EUA para pescar marlins. Essa é a Ocean City. Apesar de ter apenas 16 quilômetros de litoral no oceano Atlântico, a variedade de atrações da região impressiona. Ocean City é ótima para acampar na praia, além de ser um destino acessível e ideal para quem viaja em família, pois oferece opções para todas as idades. Você pode jogar uma partida de golfe ou minigolfe, comer no calçadão ou ir a um restaurante à beira-mar para saborear frutos do mar frescos e vinhos.
Crisfield - É uma cidade no Condado de Somerset, Maryland, Estados Unidos, localizada no Tangier Sound, um braço da Baía de Chesapeake. Está incluído na Área Estatística Metropolitana de Salisbury, Maryland-Delaware. Crisfield tem a distinção de ser a cidade incorporada mais meridional em Maryland. O local de hoje Crisfield foi inicialmente uma pequena vila de pescadores chamada Annemessex Neck. Durante a colonização européia, foi renomeado Somers Cove, depois de Benjamin Summers. Quando o potencial de negócios para frutos do mar foi descoberto, John W. Crisfield decidiu trazer a Ferrovia da Pensilvânia para Crisfield, e a tranquila cidade pesqueira cresceu.
St. Mary's City - Distrito histórico e vila, condado de St. Mary, no sul de Maryland, EUA, no rio St. Marys, a cerca de 25 km a sudeste de Leonardtown, a sede do condado. Fundada em 1634 por colonos liderados por Leonard Calvert e nomeada para a Virgem Maria, foi o primeiro assentamento europeu de Maryland e foi construída no local de uma aldeia indígena de Secowocomoco. O Monumento Leonard Calvert (1890), em razão da Igreja Episcopal da Trindade, supostamente marca o local onde os colonos se reuniram para estabelecer o primeiro governo de Maryland. St. Marys era a capital colonial e, em 1676, os colonos construíram uma casa estatal (reconstruída em 1934). Com a remoção da capital para Annapolis em 1694 e a sede do condado de Leonardtown em 1710, o assentamento declinou rapidamente.
Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge - A Flyway Atlântica é a principal rota que as aves levam entre as viagens migratórias do norte e do sul, e o Refúgio Nacional da Vida Selvagem da Blackwater foi estabelecido para dar aos nossos amigos de penas uma parada para descanso. Esta enorme extensão de pântano e floresta de pinheiros contém um terço do habitat das terras húmidas de Maryland. Milhares e milhares de pássaros chamam o refúgio de lar ou param em suas rotas migratórias. / Mais Informações:
St. Michaels - Localizado em um longo pescoço da costa leste de Maryland, o Inn at Perry Cabin de Belmond fica em jardins e jardins bem cuidados. Com suas raízes na construção de navios e tabaco, St. Michaels é descontraído. Este retiro costeiro recentemente nomeou uma das dez melhores escapadelas românticas nos EUA pela revista Coastal Living. Esta é uma pequena cidade costeira americana no seu melhor; crianças e adultos andam livremente e aproveitam os dias na água.
Annapolis USA - Localizada menos de uma hora do capital dos Estados Unidos, Annapolis oferece algo para todos. Ao mesmo tempo que é uma cidade histórica, cheia de charme, antiguidades e acontecimentos históricos importantes, ela pode se orgulhar de restaurantes elegantes e sofisticados, hoteis com “história,” uma vida noturna bem variada, shopping centers enormes e de ter o terceiro maior casino do pais. Logo que você chegar aqui, independente da época que for visitar, os moradores lhe fazem sentir bem-vindo com o jeitinho de gente dos tempos mais antigos, bem hospitaleiros.
Fort McHenry - Monumento nacional de Fort McHenry e santuário histórico, local do em forma de estrelaforte que defendeu com sucesso Baltimore, Md., EUA, de um ataque britânico durante a guerra de 1812. Este evento foi a inspiração paraPoema de Francis Scott KeyA bandeira com estampas de estrelas. O forte, localizado na entrada do porto da cidade, foi construído no local de um forte anterior. Foi nomeado por James McHenry, um dos signatários da Constituição dos EUA e secretário de guerra (1796-1800).
