The Washington D.C. area is a thriving metropolitan filled with national monuments, museums, weekend-packed events, fun nightlife, but also a variety of outdoor activities. One of DC’s best outdoor recreational areas is the Potomac River.
The district offers many opportunities for fishing enthusiasts to explore their hobby. Take a boat and cruise your way down to the west of Georgetown near the rapids and falls of the Potomac River where it is home to different kinds of catch like rainbow trout, smallmouth bass, freshwater fish, and perch.
Discover DC’s landmarks from the water via kayak or canoe, and rent from one of the many businesses that provide hourly rentals. There are several guided tours you can take via canoe and kayak that go in depth of the history of the river and the C&O Canal or some on the wildlife that inhabits the river.
Theodore Roosevelt Island
The Theodore Roosevelt Island was planned and built by the Theodore Roosevelt Association in honor of President Teddy Roosevelt and his love for the outdoors. The island is on near the Key Bridge on the Potomac and boasts a variety of trails (wooded and flat) as well as wildlife viewing. There are several ranger-led programs about the history of the island as well. See more about things-to-do on the island here.
