Soar Above the Potomac River in the Iconic Capital Wheel in Washington D.C.

Take in the beauty of all that Washington D.C’s inner harbor has to offer with a birds-eye view in the Capital Wheel. The Capital Wheel is an iconic Ferris wheel with 42 temperature-controlled gondolas for year-round viewing and entertaining. This giant, majestic, wheel stands 180 feet above the Potomac River and gives you an excellent view of the river, National Harbor, Georgetown, the city of Alexandria and so much more!

Not only can you take in the exciting views from the Capital Wheel, but while you’re visiting National Harbor you can also check out everything else it has to offer too. Check out the Flight Deck restaurant and bar while you wait for your time to ride the wheel, or take your kids on the 36-foot historic carousel, a fun and playful way to enjoy the harbor.
