National Harbor is a development along the Potomac River in Oxon Hill, Prince George's County, Maryland just south of Washington, D.C. Your day-by-day itinerary now includes National Harbor Marina. Start off your visit on the 16th (Mon): take in the waterfront activity at National Harbor Marina, then go for a stroll along the water at Harborfront Area, then try to win big at MGM National Harbor, and finally look for gifts at Peeps and Company. Here are some ideas for day two: admire the striking features of George Washington's Mount Vernon, take a stroll through National Harbor, and then don't miss a visit to The Awakening Sculpture.
