Theme Park
“Everyone in America knows about Six Flags and this location does not fail to deliver on the fun! Mix with crowds from DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia areas in one place. It's the go-to Summer fun spot for those looking to escape the blistering heat with endless water soaked rides and attractions appropriate for any and every age group. You WILL NOT be disappointed! Six Flags even opens during the Fall for the Halloween Scream Fest where there are numerous thrills to be had throughout the month of October. Expect haunted houses, fear train tours, panic escape rooms, all of your favorite characters from horror films, trick-or-treating, and more. Season passes available.”

Restaurant
“The restaurant is named Fat Boy's (the Mexican restaurant closed, but Airbnb's database hasn't updated the new info), so please don't lookf for Ponchos! Fat Boys is a seafood restaurant and they have the best Chesapeake Chicken Sandwich. We can't get past it - tender grilled chicken, topped with creamy crab dip, and strips of Applewood smoked bacon and cheddar cheese. There are 2 locations in close proximity to each other and both stay packed. I'm sure the rest of the menu is just as good. They are a local favorite. Great spot for football fans - they have the NFL Sunday Ticket.”
