The Yards Park
About two miles south of here... this is a great place to spend a pleasant afternoon. Take a walk along the river (you can even rent a kayak here!)... then stroll over to Nationals Park. The area is teeming with great restaurants -- including DC Winery and Bluejacket Brewery.
This beautiful riverfront park is an excellent place to walk around when the weather is nice or grab a bit to eat or a great glass of wine at District Winery. During the spring/summer, they host free outdoor concerts every Friday, as well as free workouts on other days.
The dramatic bridge on the Capitol Riverfront makes for a stunning shot, especially at sunrise and sunset. Play around with depth perception for an optical illusion, or grab a scoop from Ice Cream Jubilee for that perfect #foodintheair pic.
This place is great for an evening stroll along the water or to have a great meal. There are frequent events happening in the summer and throughout the year.
