“Going on a Sea Cruise”

Well it is not exactly the song "Sea Cruise" by Frankie Ford from the 50's but is is a nice break if you are going to the Leesburg VA area from Montgomery County MD. A little pricey, but much quicker and shorter. You also get to see the Potomac from an entirely new vantage point.

Across the Potomac into either va or md. It can save you time especially during off peak hours. A bit pricey but saves time and gas

It's not often one can cross a rive on a ferry. While the trip is short and not extraordinary by any stretch, you can include it as a bonus surprise for little ones if your travels take you between suburban Maryland and No. Virginia.

White's Ferry is just that...a ferry ride across the Potomac. It is a great short cut from Virginia to Maryland. There is a small shop and the staff is most friendly. The Ferry Operators are amazing, out in all weather. Hint: In real adverse weather you may want to call ahead to see if the ferry is running.

It can be a shortcut if you know the traffic and where you need to go. I have used it many times. Sometimes just for a change of pace and to avoid Capital Beltway traffic.
