  • AirBnB has many highly reviewed, affordable properties in Germantown and neighboring Mount Airy. Mount Airy has more restaurants than Germantown, and some locations are very walkable to neighboring Chestnut Hill, which is full of restaurants and shops. Many Germantown and Mount Airy locations are near public transit routes to both singing venues, it is good to check with the owners about that before booking an AirBnB.
