Located on the banks of the Potomac River—just minutes away from attractions in Washington, DC, Old Town Alexandria, and Mount Vernon—National Harbor is the perfect Atlantic waterfront destination.
You can visit the U.S. Capitol Building, only ten miles from your National Harbor hotel. Take in sights like the White House, the Smithsonian Museums, and Arlington National Cemetery. Or take a water taxi from National Harbor to Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, and browse shops and galleries housed in historic buildings. Also, don’t miss the Alexandria Black History Museum, located in the city’s Parker-Gray neighborhood, and be sure to check out the Athenaeum, an art gallery in the former bank building visited by Robert E. Lee. Nearby Mount Vernon, where you can explore George Washington’s Estate Museum and Gardens, is only a short drive away.
Sit down to an elegant dinner at a waterfront restaurant, minutes from our hotel in National Harbor. Enjoy an outdoor clambake on the shores of the Potomac at Foster’s Restaurant, hear live music at Bobby McKey’s Piano Bar, or take a dinner cruise along the Potomac River. And, of course, you can peruse unique shops, like Potomac’s Gourmet Market and Amelia’s Boutique, close by our National Harbor accommodations.
