Keep Your Eyes on the Sky at Gravelly Point
Aviation lovers won’t want to miss a visit to Gravelly Point! Sandwiched between the gorgeous Potomac River and the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, this unique attraction offers opportunity for outdoor R&R plus amazing views of planes taking off and landing.
According to experts, the busiest time for flights is between noon and 6 p.m., so if you’re there for the plane sighting, it’s best to go between those hours. If you’re there for the water views, a picnic, and conversation, you may want to avoid those times so you can hear without as many roaring engines soaring above. Regardless, it’s a beautiful spot that many visit weekly for its unique appeal. Happy exploring!
