For Adventurous Couples...
GoApe in Rockville, MD
Zip, climb, and swing in the trees (and over the road!) at GoApe in Rockville, MD. This ropes course is packed with ziplines and unique obstacles, providing a sense of accomplishment and teamwork when all is said and done. I've personally completed multiple GoApe treetop courses, and had so much fun! See their website for more info.
Six Flags America in Upper Marlboro, MD
Any local thrill-seeker has probably spent a day at Six Flags America. Whether it's your first or tenth visit, there is always something new to see. For maximum thrills, you have to ride the Superman rollercoaster. For something more tame, try the beloved wooden coaster Roar. And if you plan on going to the water park, make sure you hitch a ride on the Tornado! Visit their website for tickets.
