Awesome New Resort Holiday In Washington, DC – National Washington Harbor


by
Elias Shams
Finally, I visited our National Harbor yesterday in freezing temperature. I usually don’t visit places like this in Winter time, because of persistence from a few close non-DC friends, as a patriot DCian, I found it my duty to make the trip there so I can share my personal experience about the resort. You asked for it, here it is…. 🙂

I don’t mean to sound like a snob, if you have already traveled outside of the US (and, I mean the other side of Atlantic Ocean, not Canada nor Mexico), you might get bored with the area. You will enjoy the awesome view of the Potomac River though.. Otherwise, it a great place to visit. I might have a better experience during the summer. It is only 5 miles from where I live in DC

National Harbor is a new 300-acre waterfront destination in the Washington, DC area that opened over a year and half ago. It is set along side of the Potomac River. The area includes hotels, restaurants, retail stores, condominiums, a full-service marina, a convention center, and commercial office space. The cornerstone of the development of National Harbor is the new Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center which was beautifully decorated for the holiday. Their great atrium is adorned with holiday lights, sculptures and a great hanging Christmas tree made of glass. I was told the place is the largest non-gaming hotel and convention center on the East Coast. The resort hotel features 2,000 guestrooms, flexible meeting and banquet facilities, 6 restaurants, a nightclub, retail shopping, a full service spa and fitness center, indoor/outdoor swimming pool and outdoor event space. The area covers 41.7 acres and has spectacular views of the Potomac River and Old Town Alexandria.

Good News for families with kids, there are plans underway to build the National Children’s Museum there.
