The first good day of spring and we went here to watch the planes!! Love this place!! Always a thrill to see the planes so low!!
On a windy and cold early spring day, I drove North on the George Washington Parkway to Gravelly Point. There the parking lot was surprisingly filled with limos, trucks and cars. Most of the people stayed in their cars because they probably had been there many times. People come here to watch the descending planes landing at Washington Reagan National... More
I sometimes stop at this park when biking the Mount Vernon Trail. The park itself is nothing special -- the cool thing about this park is watching the planes land and take off at National Airport. It feels like the planes are just a few feet overhead (they're probably more like a few hundred feet overhead) and you can really... More
I love airplanes. This park sits next to the Potomac just off the north end of the main runway at DCA. When they're landing to the South the big passenger jets skim the grass on their final approach (well almost). National Airport has one of the twistiest landing approaches in the world and the planes bend around the river and... More
Visited here over the summer on a motorcycle ride and it was perfect. Great place to set up and have a picnic and some wine and watch the airplanes take off and land, as well as watch the folks having fun in the water on boats and jet skis.

Depending on the weather, this venue at the north end of Reagan National Airport will find planes taking off or landing. Most of the time the plane watching is fun. Be aware that the parking lot can be hangout on weekend evenings with music and plenty of teens and young adults. Don't even try to go here to watch the... More
This is an exciting spot to watch airplanes land and take off. They fly right over your head at a very low altitude. The kids will love it as well as the adults. Take your camera and get some great shots. Plenty of parking, a place to picnic, a beautiful view and porta potties are available. It's located just north... More
The park is at the north end of runway 1/19. Depending on the wind direction it is a great location to watch planes either landing or taking off. There is also a boat ramps and very active biking / running trail. Parking at the park can be hard to come by in the summer months with nice weather. Please pay... More
