C&O Canal

The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, a 19th-century commercial waterway, now serves as a national historical park. The towpath is popular with joggers and bikers, especially the local section linking Georgetown with the Potomac River’s Great Falls. Although the visitors center at Georgetown is closed indefinitely, the one at Great Falls Tavern offers tours, boat rides and events.
