Great spot to visit on you way out of town, leaving via Reagen airport. Get to see the planes up close and personal!

It seems strange to say its romantic, but in the middle of planes at national airport taking off, Duck boats driving through with tourists, and being right off the road, it really is. Clean, sunny, on the water, you have to duck when the planes go overhead they're so low, it's a great visit.

Great place to spend an hour just watching the planes take off and land. You can also watch the ducks hang out, and the river tours roll by.

This is the coolest place to sit and watch planes fly overhead as they land or take off from Washington National Airport. The location provides a view you can't get at any other airport.

Nice little park, easily accessible on the mount vernon trail. Great place to watch planes take and land at national airport.
