Paddle boat the Tidal Basin in Washington DC

See also

The Tidal Basin is a small body of water near the National Mall along Independence Avenue. Here you can walk the famous 2.1 mile walk around the Tidal Basin, offering unparalleled views of Washington’s springtime cherry blossoms. I's also home to the Jefferson Memorial, the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, and the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial.

Take the Metro to the Smithsonian Station, where you will have an easy jaunt of about .40 to the Tidal Basin. Or, you can park free at East Potomac Park, where the Tidal Basin is only a short walk from the parking lot. Either way, consider renting a paddle boat near the Jefferson Memorial for an idyllic afternoon in the Nation’s Capitol.
