Washington DC Monuments by Moonlight Tour by Trolley

Washington DC looks spectacular when lit up at night, so make the most of your time in the city by going on an evening tour on an open-air trolley. Going on an organized tour saves time working out local public transport, and means you can learn along the way through guide commentary. Tick off lots of top landmarks such as the Lincoln Memorial, the White House, the Washington Memorial, and more.

While reservations are required, there were plenty of kayaks and all other watercraft available. It's convenient to get to, but parking nearby is $22, unless you can find parking at the end of K street, below the Whitehurst Freeway. You get pretty views of DC monuments and at high tide, can circle Roosvelt Island.

Kayaking on the Potomac is a fantastic way to enjoy good DC weather and see the city from a different perspective. It's super easy to paddle past the Georgetown waterfront and before you know it, you're surrounded by trees on both sides of the river but can see the Washington Monument in the distance. We visited Memorial Day weekend and there were plenty of kayaks available. Service was quick, the kayaks were in good condition, and prices were fair.

This location is primarily a rowing facility, but offers kayaking and canoeing. Upon arrival, you fill out a form that is on a desk outside of the entrance. You are charged based on how long you are out on the kayak and they provide lifejackets for you for free (they do not have life jackets for dogs like the other DC boathouse). There are lockers available for use, but you must bring your own lock. We had to be on the look out for rowers, and there were boats that caused some small wakes, but overall we had a great experience! The location is great as it is located near a beautiful walkway with several shops and restaurants.

We rented a double Kayak on a Monday morning for 2 hours and had a fabulous time. The folks that work here are so nice and make the whole experience easy and fun. The Kayaks are clean, the price is right and if your are staying in Foggy Bottom this is the easiest place to rent from. They also have bikes and canoes. We had a great time and loved our time on the river.
