Since 2008, when the first stores and restaurants began opening in National Harbor, this riverfront area has become an increasingly popular destination for those in the Washington, DC region. It is now one of the top choices for shopping and entertainment in the metropolitan areas surrounding not only Washington, DC, but also Baltimore.
Located along the Potomac River in Maryland, National Harbor covers 350 acres and includes more than 70 top retailers, bars and restaurants. The centerpiece of the area is a famous sculpture, “The Awakening” that once graced D.C.’s Hains Point. Visitors to this waterside destination can choose from a variety of accommodation types, including fine National Harbor resorts, as well as more budget-friendly National Harbor hotels.
Across the beautiful Potomac River and just a water taxi ride away from the hotels at National Harbor is Virginia’s historic Alexandria area, which is also home to a number of fine dining establishments and popular bars. National Harbor, which is located in Prince George's County, is also just minutes away from downtown Washington, DC.
In addition, the fun and excitement of casino gambling will soon be heading to at least one of the National Harbor, Maryland hotels. In 2012, Maryland voters elected to legalize casino table games in the state and also approved the addition of a new resort casino to be built in National Harbor.
