Like--views, restaurants, location, few nice shops, easy to access and get to from Reagan National Airport Dislike-- not thrilled they're building a casino so close by, wish there was some more unique shopping (not referring to outlet mall near-by)

I traveled to the National Harbor and was there for four days on business. I heard a lot of about the National Harbor, but was shocked as to why anyone would travel to this location. The entire area must have been built within the past 10 years. There is absolutely no charm to the area. It's just chain restaurants, stores,... More

This is a place that has just about everything for everyone. Lots of great stores, restuarants, bars. Great for taking a stroll at night down by the water.

This is a nice place to go for a half day. There are plenty of restaurants, shops, children's museum, marina (with paddle boats and kayaks) and some hotels.

When the weather is nice and you just want to walk around and window shop, maybe grab a bite to eat, this is a just a neat little area to mosey around casually.

Weather was great...a little windy but better than it had been. Great area to come with family or your spouse to get away, walk around, eat...shop and just relax!
