What to Do
Miller Farms Farmers MarketEvery Saturday and Sunday from May to December, The National Harbor hosts a local farmer's market where patrons come and stroll along the water and picking up treats along the way.The market offers a wide range of fresh fruits and veggies, delicious baked goods, and beautiful flowers and plants.
Boat Tours/CruisesBy way of water taxi from The National Harbor you can board the Washington by Water Cruise, which comes with guided tours of DC’s many historic landmarks and monuments including the Lincoln and Jefferson memorials, the Washington Monument and the Kennedy Center. Another course, also with the Potomac Riverboat Company, takes you to George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate and Gardens, and Fort Washington (from the Maryland side). The cruise prides itself on offering guests a beautiful view of the sunset at Riverview Park, a sight most tourists aren’t privy to during their time in the Nation’s Capitol.
River ActivitiesFrom April November you can kayak, paddle board and cruise around on pedal boats through the harbor. Check out the National Harbor website for season passes, which come with unlimited access, free introductory classes and 20% off all other classes, tours, even the popular yoga classes.
