Come join fellow ANV friends on a local tourist adventure. On Monday, June 22 we will be taking a boat trip to National Harbor to dine, explore the sights, or do some shopping.
Water Taxi: We will take a 20-minute Water Taxi leaving from Alexandria dock at 10:45 am to National Harbor. The return trip will leave from National Harbor at 3:15 pm to Alexandria. Each person will be responsible for purchasing his or her own ticket. To guarantee a place on the water taxi at these times, it is advisable to purchase your tickets online in advance. The cost for the round trip per person is $14.00 if purchased on the website and $16.00 if purchased at the dock. The water taxi is Potomac Riverboat Company (703) 684-0580 and this is the website to order tickets. If you are not comfortable ordering on-line, note that in your RSVP or call the office at office (703-509-8057).
Lunch and Activities: Each traveler will individually pay for his lunch at a restaurant of his choice. (http://www.nationalharbor.com).
Afterwards do some sightseeing, shopping, or ride the Carousel or Capital Ferris Wheel where you can see views of DC, Alexandria, and Prince George’s County from climate-controlled gondolas. The ferris wheel ride is $13.50 (for members 60+); tickets can be purchased at National Harbor or online.
Parking: There are parking lots in Old Town near the waterfront. The Water Taxi leaves from the Alexandria waterfront (3 Cameron Street Alexandria 22314) (map) behind the Torpedo Factory.
