    If you haven't yet made the trip to National Harbor, you probably have legitimate reasons for it: you're not sure how to get there, where to go, or what to do. All valid. But luckily, we've done the legwork for you — literally! — and scoped out the nabe's best restos, shops, hangout spots, and activities to help you plan the perfect weekend getaway.

    Whether you're driving, taking Metro, or cruising over on a ferry from Old Town Alexandria, we've got an accessible itinerary that covers everything you'll want to do when you arrive — from scarfing what might just be the best pizza in the DMV to discovering an accessories shop that'll make you swoon.

But, no matter how you choose to spend the day, we promise you'll feel worlds away from D.C. (in a good way!).
