Find out why this pedestrian-friendly community on the Potomac attracted millions of visitors last year.
Talk about location, location, location. National Harbor, Maryland—and all of its restaurants, hotels, shops, and attractions—are easily accessible from Washington, D.C., or Alexandria, Virginia. You can reach National Harbor by plane, train, car—even by boat since it has two 700-foot-long piers and a marina with 64 slips.
The planned, mixed-use community with stellar waterfront views has six hotels, including the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center. A new MGM National Harbor resort and casino are set to open before the end of this year. Shop Tanger Outlets or boutique retailers, and choose from about 30 restaurants, including Cadillac Ranch and the first Maryland location of North Carolina-based Brother Jimmy’s. Kids will love the National Carousel—and even big kids can hop on the 180-foot-tall Capital Wheel for panoramic Ferris wheel views of the city.
