The Potomac River is one of the top attractions in the entire state of Maryland. It’s also your best opportunity to get out onto the water to see the area in a new way. From scenic tours to drinks with friends, here are a few boating options less than 30 minutes from our apartments in District Heights, MD.

Float Boat 360

There’s no need to keep searching for a fun, new, outdoor activity you can share with your friends. Float Boat 360 ticks all the boxes. Imagine being guided downriver in a small round boat shaded by an umbrella. Everyone gets 360-degree views as you sit around the boat’s cozy central table with ice, drinks, and snacks. The only thing you need to do is sit back and enjoy 2 hours of drifting down the Potomac. 

Monumental Boat Tours

Monumental Boat Tours is another exciting way to explore the Potomac River by boat — with you as the captain. Steer a two-person Craigcat across the water on your choice of two different narrated tours, each with a different theme. You can expect the type of boating experience that gets you up close and personal with the water, so prepare to get a little wet. You will have a dry box on each boat to store small personal items like phones, wallets, and snacks. Reservations with a full deposit are required.

National Harbor Boathouse

For a sportier but more low-key boating experience, look no further than National Harbor Boathouse. Here you can rent a kayak, pedal boat, hydro bike, or SUP to slow things down and keep it simple. Paddle around in a single or tandem kayak with a 1, 2, or 4-hour rental. Quietly explore the shoreline and marina around the scenic National Harbor, or get some exercise on a hydro bike as you take your workout out of the gym and onto the breezy, open Potomac River. Either way, the very reasonable hourly rates here make this boating experience worth a visit.

For the perfect end to your day of boating on the Potomac, treat yourself to a snack at one of the best ice cream shops near District Heights, If you’re searching for pet-friendly apartments, contact us. We would love to show you all that Walker Mill has to offer.
