Inside the Esplanade, building residents can enjoy use of a truly beautiful, world-class sparkling resort-style pool. Best of all, the pool is housed in a lounge area complete with a spacious sundeck filled with chaise lounges, chairs and tables so guests can relax poolside in style. Have a barbecue by the pool as it’s nearby an outdoor kitchen with two grills. Guests also can maximize their free time when they enjoy use of a luxurious clubhouse and an active courtyard stocked with bocce, horseshoes, and chess. When it does come time to leave home, residents can hop on a water taxi that transports them to Washington, D.C. and Alexandria, VA.

Outside of The Esplanade, the National Harbor also offers 350 acres of Potomac shoreline and abounds with water activities. Dock a boat at the marina and get ready to sail to nearby top sites like Georgetown or Mount Vernon. If you’d rather enjoy a more leisurely activity, consider bass fishing. The National Bass Guide Service can help provide costumers with a customized tour and provide them with rental equipment too. Sailtime DC and Carefree Boat Club both offer memberships so guests can use yachts, power cruisers or boats without the hassle of having to own.

Those looking for more active pursuits are in luck. The National Harbor is teeming with things to do. Enjoy renting kayak or pedal boats by the hour to get exercise on the water in. Visit the Marina Rental Dock for rates and additional information. Boating in DC also offers canoe, kayak, stand-up paddleboard, and pedal boat rentals in addition to kayak, canoe or paddleboard classes. This company also offers stand-up paddleboard fitness and yoga classes for those daring fitness enthusiasts.

Esplanade residents looking to enjoy the water—from stand-up paddle boarding to time spent relaxing poolside—will find that and more at the National Harbor.
