With close proximity to Maryland, Virgina, and Washington, D.C., Tantallon Marina is a true hidden gem along the Potomac River. Here are all the cool things you can do and see while docked in gorgeous Fort Washington, Maryland. 

Tantallon Marina is nestled on the calm waters of Swan Creek in the Upper Potomac. The marina features wet slips and land storage open to live-aboards or transient boaters! Contracts run from 12 months to day-to-day pricing, perfect for those looking to live along these beautiful docks or make a quick stop headed North or South along the Potomac. 

If you want to stay dockside, the marina boasts a beautiful picnic area overlooking the calm waters. Swan Creek is known for being a home to Bald Eagles, and you can watch them fly overhead while you relax on your boat. Try your hand at fishing for bass, carp, catfish, perch, or trout – though the waters are known for their great bites so you should have a great day fishing on the waters. 

Downtown Fort Washington is quaint and relaxed. Guests will have access to great restaurants, shops, and groceries if you need to restock. However, the town is also known for its rich history and parks. Fort Washington National Park has stood as a river defense of Washington, D.C. for 200 years. It is here that guests can visit original historical

buildings, walk along the fort walls, and even watch battle reenactments. Fort Foote Park is also close-by, and it is generally known as the best preserved Civil War Fort in Maryland!

The marina is less than a 30-minute drive or rideshare to Washington, D.C. or National Harbor, both bustling cities with much to do. The beautiful Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center is a must visit while in National Harbor, Maryland. Guests can walk the streets and visit many iconic landmarks of the city including the Peeps store, art installations such as The Awakening statue, and the 180ft Capital Wheel Ferris Wheel. You can also try your luck at MGM National Harbor or catch a show at their theatre. While in D.C., we recommend checking out The District Wharf and grabbing a bite to eat at one of many amazing

restaurants! You can also catch a bus to the National Mall and check out all of the monuments and museums. 

Tantallon Marina combines the magic of a remote getaway with the convenience of a nearby highway. Start planning your future trips along the Potomac today.
