  • The river flows through the entire Washington. There are two wonderful ways to get acquainted with it: first, take a canoe or boat in George Town and descend the River to at least one of the bridges. And the second is to take the car and drive to the Potomac River National Park, which is about an hour's drive from the city. Potomac River the fourth-highest in the United States and on the territory of the National Park are the most beautiful waterfalls of this powerful river. Entrance to the Park is free and parking too. In the territory equipped picnic area and restrooms. A lot of hiking trails along the shore. And still very much mosquitoes, so don't forget the mosquito repellent.
