Few months ago I came across this Great Walks in DC list. I’m always looking for somewhere new to explore with the kids. I was beyond excited to visit the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal.
The C&O Canal is now a National Park it begins in Georgetown and extends ? Miles to Cumberland, Maryland.
The canal is tucked away . If you’re not careful, you’ll miss it. I’ve been hanging around in Georgetown since last year literally down the street from the canal and I had no idea it was there. We actually found the beginning of the canal by accident.
Being at the canal transfers you to villages in Europe. Bright buildings adorn the corrider. Across the street is a great area to eat.
I was disappointed. Seeing this picture I expected a much larger area
Insider Tip:- Avoid bringing a stroller if possible.
