The circus is all about joy and wonder. Trapeze artists, acrobats, tightrope walkers, fire breathers, contortionists, and many more performers travel from place-to-place, spreading happiness through their shows. An incredible experience for the entire family.


Attendees in and around Prince George’s will be amazed by the performances of UniverSoul Circus.


The show has put up its tent at National Harbor and will run through the end of August on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. There will also be special performances on Monday, July 3, and Tuesday, July 4, to accommodate the holiday. Bring family and friends to watch this global group of circus performers at the show of a lifetime.


Make your circus viewing a weekend event with this itinerary:


Book a stay at a kid-friendly hotel with a pool. The Hampton Inn & Suites National Habor/Alexandria Area is just a five-minute walk from the circus tent, and the hotel offers free hot breakfast, an on-site convenience store, and a business center.


Customize your stay at the modern Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center. The hotel boasts a 19-story glass atrium, an indoor pool, a fitness center, and a spa. There are even two-bedroom suites to fit the whole family.


Grab dinner at Cadillac Ranch, a bar and grille that serves chicken wings, loaded fries, salads, burgers, ribs, and more. There’s also a kid’s menu filled with options, including mac & cheese, hamburgers, grilled cheese, and buttered pasta.


Get artistic at the Muse Paint Bar. Choose your painting, date, and time when you book your session — then bring your art home to display.


Enjoy a treat at the Furlough Cheesecake shop where you can enjoy miniature versions of the company’s cheesecakes. Order the Keylicious, a key lime cheesecake, or a vegan Strawberry Affair. There are even gluten-free options available.


Find perfect views above the 180-foot Capital Wheel. Reserve a ticket for the Ferris wheel on the Potomac River, with its climate-controlled gondolas. Enjoy a drink at the Flight Deck waterfront lounge below the wheel before you start your ride.


Shop along the promenade to get the perfect souvenir from your trip. Get personalized jewelry from Alex & Ani, find your most fitting skin-care routine at Brookie Girl, or construct a stuffed animal at the Build-a-Bear Workshop.


Order lunch before you leave, Stop by Mason’s Famous Lobster Rolls to delight in the type of sandwich a visitor to New England would enjoy. Take home the taste with a classic lobster roll “make-at-home” kit.


Plan another weekend of family fun with a sports-focused weekend in Prince George’s.
