I used to live in DC, so went to see the Awakening at Hains Point and was disappointed to learn it has been moved to a new place. The website did not mention this detail. Anyway, it was still great to see this part which is less known among the tourists and frequented by the locals.

This could be a lovely walk but the trail (sidewalk) has been neglected and there are holes in many many places. It looks like it's ready to collapse (and in one place it had) into the river. I did not enjoy and would not go again.

The friend that I was in DC with for the day had seen pictures of an awesome sculpture on Haines Point. So we decided to walk around the point. The walk was invigorating and the views were gorgeous. Planes, fishermen, boats, people, water, animals. What a wonderful place to walk. However, we were disappointed that the website that she had... More

Very little is available on the SW Waterfront these days. The historic Fish Market is still open. Jenny's Restaurant was shut down for the building to be demolished but is scheduled to open in the old Channel Inn soon. The Capital Yacht Club has relocated to the old Channel Inn but everything else along Water Street is under construction. You... More

Fabulous location to bike, run, walk or just plane and people watch. I live in Southwest DC and am able to love it Spring, Summer, and Fall - not so much winter....😜

My son had a rugby match at the tip of the peninsula at hains point. What a great green space in Washington, D.C. So many bikers, walkers, families, cookouts. Boats going up and down the potomac while rugby going on. They even have a nice playground with restroom facilities Definitely a nice place to bike or walk on a Saturday... More

Great view of the river and nice place for a spring walk when the trees are in bloom. Go early to avoid crowds expecially on the weekends.

The only reasons to go to Hains Point are to golf (if you have lots of money), admire the view of National Airport, and run during races (Marine Corps Marathon, Cherry Blossom 10-miler, Jingle Bell Dash, etc.). Jogging on your own is a pain because you're dodging traffic. This place needs to be overhauled or turned into some giant memorial.

As you drive along Hains Point for the next few years you'll watch the DC waterfront change as the revitalization construction takes off. Some things are already different: Hogate's Restaurant (aka H2O) is gone and a new professional tennis court has taken its place. You'll notice that the number of boats at the Gangplank Marina has shrunk. and, hopefully, this... More
