Your favorite river
Your Favorite River :The Potomac River
We have lived in the Metropolitan DC area for over twenty years. The Potomac River is probably our most visited. The Cherry Blossom Festival being our most favorite time to visit and spend time at the Tidal Basin. Once the festival nears the end a quiet walk on the banks of the river with the remaining blossoms is a peaceful treat.
Viewing the monuments and their reflections on the water gives a great photo opportunity.
National Harbor is another favorite afternoon and evening on the Potomac with the shops, restaurants and just walking on the docks.
We never tire of visiting the five section cast iron sculpture named 'The Awakening' . This work of art was originally at home on Hains Point, near the Jefferson Memorial. He was moved to National Harbor in 2008.
On to even a more gentler side to the river on the Virginia side we enjoy the sunset at Colonial Beach.
The last photo is at Harper's Ferry West Virginia where the Potomac meets the Shenandoah River. Hiking , rock climbing, canoeing, river rafting and white water rafting, or just a slow stroll and a delicious meal through historic Harper's Ferry needs more than one day to enjoy.
