National Harbor was a great place to visit. There were four of us and we stayed for five days. We had a lot of fun just walking around the shops and the pier. You can walk out on the pier and just sit and watch the boats go by. Sometimes there's people playing music or doing aerobics on the pier its fun to join in or just watch. There are restaurants on the pier if you go to The restaurant Fiorella Pizzeri don't get the pizza it was horrible, it was burnt and the meatballs on it were horrible we took it back to our room and threw it away. McCormics and Schmitt's was excellent a little pricey but you get what you pay for. I wouldn't advise getting carb cakes at the Cadillac Ranch Restaurant they had a lot of filler and very spicy it took away from the taste of the crab cake. But Cadillac Ranch does have bull riding and a fun atmosphere! Also if your going to buy food for your hotel room do not go to the Gourmet grocery prices are high and a lot of food was expired. CVS has a nice selection of food. There is a water taxi that takes you over to Alexandria that is a great little town to visit. Just watch a lot of pan handlers thou. Alexandria has coble stone streets they're pretty neat, and a lot of old cool homes. Back at National Harbor Wyndham has a courtesy pickup bus to take you into Washington DC. You do have to pay a fare for the bus but if you get the 48hr pass they give you a couple of free places to see like The wax museum, crimes and punishment museum, and a cruise on the Potomac River. A lot of DC Museums are free. The bus company that picks you up takes you right into DC they have 4 different color routes you can take, we took one long route and one short route each day. You can get on or hop off any big bus stop just watch that you take the right color bus, since there are 4 colors. The only draw back of taking the bus from Wyndham is that you have to catch the bus back at 5pm it's the only one that goes back to National Harbor. If your running late to catch the bus back it might be worth catching a cab back to the station, we did it only cost 10.00 and we just made the bus. If you miss it you have to take a cab or the metro back to National Harbor. Now we did see a bus that said National Harbor Courtesy dropping people off in front of the hotel, but we seen it on our last night I don't really know how you go about catching that bus. All an all this was a very relaxing vacation. I think we all lost weight from all the walking we did. lol
