In May 2017, I headed to the National Harbor area to attend the STC Summit conference. My conference buddy and I always arrive one day early so we can do the tourist thing. We got up early enough to wander around the streets near the National Harbor Carousel. The only people on the streets were those into their businesses before opening for the day.
Technically, National Harbor is on the Maryland side of the Potomac River. 🙂
Once we toured around, we headed on the Alexandria – National Harbor water taxi from Potomac Riverboat Company to the National Mall area. We bought a round trip fare so we could just hop back on at the other end when we were done.
Both of us had been to D.C. and the National Mall areas before, but there were a couple of new memorials to see: the MLK memorial and the WWII memorial.
I didn’t get nearly enough time at the World War II memorial, since we were on a timeline. I’ll need to go back sometime to take it all in.
