The District of Columbia isn’t all about monuments and American marvels, it’s also about culture and community, two ideas reflected well within the Southwest Waterfront, or District Wharf. This residential neighborhood blended with business community is a waterfront region in of itself within D.C, a place many people call ‘the most exciting neighborhood in the history of the nation’s capital’. That’s a really huge role to fill, we know, so what’s all the fuss about?
Well, here at the Wharf your group can enjoy amazing views, popular restaurants, and plenty of entertainment, all of this mixed with a style and historic grace that only D.C can pull off. This is considered to be both “Washington’s next great meeting place’ and the very spot where ‘D.C meets the water’. Reestablishing itself as a waterfront city and destination, the layout for this area was first put into motion by L’Enfant Design in 1791. Talk about an intriguing history!
While here you can take the water taxi/Wharf Jitney, one of the easiest and best ways to travel along the Potomac and Anacostia, as well as across the Washington Channel. There are regularly featured events along the Waterfront here such as various festivals and fireworks displays, not to mention the numerous parks, piers, water recreation options, fitness opportunities, and music and nightlife scenes.
Have we even mentioned one of the best parts, the Municipal Fish Market? The Maine Avenue Fish Market is the oldest continuously operating open-air fish market here, providing you with some of the absolute freshest, and most delicious, seafood in the whole area! Catch a fish, catch some dinner, and then catch a show or some shopping, this place really has it all!
