Potomac River

Middle Chesapeake Bay Cruise

We just wrapped up a four day, three stop cruise around the middle Chesapeake Bay.  This is a section of the bay around the Potomac River and is south of Annapolis and north of Norfolk.  This cruise included three stops, Tangier Island, Virginia, Crisfield, Maryland and Solomons Island, Maryland.  If you're a boater make sure you check out our boating specific information at the end of each destination.

Get Outdoors: Roosevelt Island, VA

Looking for a different experience in Washington, DC?  Cross the Potomac River into Virginia and head over to Roosevelt Island.  The island is located across the river from DC's Georgetown neighborhood and is a memoral to the nation's 26th president.  Roosevelt Island is part of the National Park Service.  To get there, head North on the George Washington Parkway from the Memorial or 14th Street Bridges.  You can only access the park from the GW Parkway or Mt. Vernon bike trail.

Sunday Cruise: Washington, DC

Now that warmer weather is here I can get back to one of my favorite activities, boating.  This is one of my favorite forms of travel.  Each Sunday we're going to share a different cruise or destination.   This week, I'm starting in my home port of Washington, DC.
