Located along the Potomac River on 350 acres, the waterfront development holds more than 160 shops, 40 restaurants and eight hotels, as well as multiple entertainment venues and options for water-focused adventures.


Fly high on the Capital Wheel, take a spin on the Carousel

Soar 180 feet in the air on the area’s only observation wheel, which spins right on the waterfront. The Capital Wheel features 42 climate-controlled gondola cars that seat up to eight and circle every day and night of the year, providing stunning views of Alexandria, Va., DC’s monuments and the Potomac River. You can also take a spin on the 36-foot, Americana-themed Carousel at National Harbor, featuring a herd of whimsical creatures.


Stroll and shop

On the wide, walkable streets in the National Harbor Waterfront District, you’ll find more than 65 shops, including boutiques and specialty stores. From the jewelry and collectibles at Fire and Ice to the exclusive collections at Stile for Men and the treasures at designer resale boutique Betty, you have numerous options at National Harbor. Pretty Girl Cupcakery and Savannah’s Candy Kitchen will have you coming back for more. Peeps & Company (one of only two  in the country) will also astonish with its multitude of flavors and products.


Live the Vegas lifestyle at MGM National Harbor

The MGM National Harbor is a resort with Las Vegas-style on-site gaming, dining and entertainment. Test your luck at any of the 3,600 slot machines and 140 gaming tables. Eateries include the highly acclaimed Fish by José Andrés, and Voltaggio Brothers Steakhouse. You can shop at boutiques as well, including SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker.


Dine at one of National Harbor's trendy restaurants

There are more than 40 restaurants at National Harbor, from Edward Lee’s widely acclaimed Succotash to the New York-sleek Bond 45 (the only location outside of Manhattan) to the Pan Asian fusion of Grace’s Mandarin. Enjoy upscale ambiance and fabulous steaks at Old Hickory Steakhouse or indulge in  margaritas and authentic Mexican cuisine at Rosa Mexicano. There are also fast casual options, including the award-winning Mason’s Famous Lobster Rolls. Many eateries have outdoor seating, perfect for summertime revelry.


Score bargains at Tanger Outlets

Visit Gaylord National Resort

Float (paddle, or peddle) your own boat

From May through September, head to Boating in DC’s National Harbor location and rent a kayak, pedal boat or stand-up paddle board to enjoy the Potomac River.


Enjoy amazing outdoor public art

Murals, statues and other works of art from renowned local and national artists pepper the landscape at National Harbor. The most notable might be “The Awakening,” J. Seward Johnson’s dramatic metal sculpture of a giant emerging from the ground (it’s great for kids to play on, too). Other highlights include Albert Paley’s pair of 4,500-pound  steel eagle statues which perch over the main plaza. There’s also a wall mural, “Maryland’s Bounty.” You can also enjoy an art walk down American Way.
