59. Great Falls Park

Posted at May 5, 2011 by 4 Comments

Welcome! Check out our featured DC area business Maids in Black, DC Cleaning Services.

Where do you begin?

It feels like you’ve had the city strapped on your back  and you’re looking to get the load off for a bit.  You’ve spent more than enough time at the local watering holes, and sports bars, and cigar lounges…and now you just need a break.

Just a few moments to recharge.  That’s all.

Well today I give you a quick relaxation spot that’s less than 15 miles from Washington DC:

Great Falls Park.

This post was inspired by Kristi’s post over at Live and Love Out Loud as she celebrated the beauty of Missouri.  I thought for a minute and realized that the DC area also has its share of natural beauty.  And the Great Falls Park was the first spot that came to mind.

I love the rocky cliffs, the amazing views, and the chance sighting of birds and exotic looking butterflies (if you’re lucky).  It’s a great spot for hiking and kayaking, or to just relax in the shade with someone you love being around.

Essentials:  Some water, snacks, good shoes, and the $5 park fee per car.  Oh and maybe a camera so you can relive the memories.  And a smile.

Enjoy!
