Washington D.C. – off the beaten path

Filed under: Travel — Porcupyn @ 11:42 pm

Just northwest (I stand corrected – it is North, not northwest, per the map) of Ronald Reagan National Airport in Washington D.C., along the George Washington Memorial Parkway, lies a picnic area/park called Gravelly Point. The location – depending on wind direction – provides an excellent vantage point for those interested in gazing at planes landing or taking off. We spent 15 fun minutes there last Sunday (rush hour for the planes according to the linked article). Too bad I forgot to bring my camera out – I only have video recordings :-(. Oh well …

There is another point just south of the airport too, near a Marina – take Marina Drive from the Parkway.
