Often called the “nation’s river,” the Potomac River flows freely through the nation’s capital, covering an area of nine million acres and providing fresh drinking water for over four million citizens.
With its basin in Washington, DC, the Potomac regularly buzzes with life thanks to the capital’s residents, who actively engage in a wealth of water-based activities, such as sailing, canoeing and fishing. While most marinas along the river mainly harbor small cruisers, there are several big enough to accommodate the superyachts – and the tastes – of the Elite Traveler.
