    A bit of a throwback, Merriweather is a treat, especially when the weather is ideal. Under the roof is best. Plenty of food and drink vendors. It feels like a park turned into concert venue.

    Ticket booth on the South entrance opens at 5p, so don't feel like you have to trek on the side of the (dangerous) gravel road to get to the North box office. Also, pregaming while in line is a MUST!

    Great for graduation, but my tip goes to the girls! Don't wear heels. It's a long walk and hills and downhills! :(

    Without a doubt, "The Pit" is the best place to enjoy a show here. It's never too crowded and the acoustics are EPIC. Ticket price is fairly comparable as well.

    Best opened live concert in MD. Make sure you eat or plan in advance before because food can be expensive. Allowed water, one bottle.

    Bring in 5$ footling subs to avoid the $15 chicken tenders. You can bring water too of any size, so I suggest bringing a gallon. Especially in 85 degree weather in October! It's great !

    This is the best outdoor concert space in Maryland! Make sure you arrive early to snag a good seat on the lawn!

    Don't spend money on the pavilion seats. The lawn is sloped and you can get great seats at the top.

    If this place weren't in the middle of nowhere it would be awesome. If they moved it to Rock Creek Park it would be perfect.
