Must see and do
The brand new District Wharf is a must see and do. There are many many restaurants to visit along with activities to take part in that will get you off your feet. Enjoy a river cruise ride or a water taxi ride, or get a little exercise and rent a kayak and explore the Potomac River. If you are staying for a while, consider a night of music at the Anthem theater. If you are coming with your kids, play oversized board games, go kayaking or play in the fountains.
I am a local expert in the Washington, D.C. running scene, having owned a running store in the area for more than 13 years. I and my husband recently sold the business to pursue other ventures. But because I have lived in the area for more than 30 years, I am an expert on where to run, where to eat and what local activities are worth checking out.
