Half-Day Grand Tour of Washington DC

Avoid the stress of renting a car and navigating on your own on this bus tour of Washington DC. A guide provides entertaining historical context, as you pass more than 50 of the city’s iconic landmarks, including the White House, Capitol Building, Lincoln Memorial, and National Mall. Unlike most city bus tours, a small group size ensures you have the guide's full attention for questions and comments.

This small park is to honor Francis Scott Key, the author/composer of the National Anthem of USA. There is a small statue of this man located here and several plaques explaining his historical contributions. Several benches are located near the park for one to rest and enjoy the surroundings. Behind this park are steps to go down to the C & O Canal Path and Potomac River. I enjoyed my visit here!

This is a small, bt well kept park that can be easily overlooked if you're not paying close attention. There is some information, and a small bust of Key in the park. Can be seen in 5 minutes or less before heading out of or going into Georgetown. Access is somewhat difficult also.

The park is at the end of Key Bridge in Georgetown. There is a small statue of Francis Scott Key and some information about him to American history. The memorial was built by the Francis Scott Key foundation and was donated to the Park Services later. There are some nice patches of wooded area with wild flowers. Visitors who stroll along the C&O canal can visit the park of the end canal walk right at the bridge. Visitors walking on the Key bridge from Rosslyn can stop the park before wondering into the busy street of Georgetown or going down to the C&O canal for the walk.

I really enjoyed crossing the bridge with the beautiful view of the Georgetown University, and then stopping at the Park before walking around the restaurants and shops and eventually walking to Georgetown. This a really beautiful area, highly recommeded for any trip to DC.
