The canal is so long and varied that one review cannot cover all there is to do. We were interested in the history and doing something different than more monuments. We were disappointed that the visitors center in Georgetown was closed. But we had a nice lunch and short walk next to the canal. I was very surprised it was so narrow and the houses so close in some places.
The next day we drove to Great Falls Tavern just a few miles up the river. That was fabulous. We took their mule drawn canal boat ride an learned so much. It helped that the day was about 20 degrees cooler.(than the previous 90) and there was a nice breeze. It was a nice day in a park. Even the park refreshments were decent and reasonably priced.
