Set along the outskirts of the Nation’s Capital lays the National Harbor; an expansive 300-acre waterfront destination perched along a 1.5-mile panoramic stretch of the Potomac River. Designed with modern and contemporary aesthetics, this harbor retreat lures visitors to its popular restaurants, quaint shops, lively events, and engaging activities.
Food lovers flock to McCormick & Schmick’s Harborside, Rosa Mexicano, and Sauciety, which are located inside the Westin Hotel, or they whet their appetite at the Old Hickory Steakhouse, Pienza Italian Market, and National Pastime Sports Bar & Grill located at the Gaylord National Resort. As the day turns to night, those who imbibe enjoy having a nightcap over live music in one of the lounges and entertainment venues.
National Harbor also offers guests different ways to enjoy the Potomac: The marina serves as a picturesque setting for private events, personal watercraft, cruises, and even water-taxi service. And the Miller Farms Farmers Market, a seasonal, upscale farmers market, is a great way to sample goods from some of the region’s premier purveyors of specialty foods, wines, and gifts.
The Capital Wheel is the National Harbor’s iconic attraction, consisting of 42-closed and climate-controlled gondolas soaring 175-feet above the Potomac River. You will marvel at the incomparable views! Sights include glimpses into Washington DC: The White House, Arlington National Cemetery, the National Mall, and other landmarks.
Notable hotel properties include the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, Westin Hotel, AC Marriott, Hampton Inn & Suites, and Residence Inn.
National Harbor merges recreation, work, living, and entertainment in a way that has never been done. For more information on this marvel in Prince George’s County, visit www.nationalharbor.com
