Stunning Views from the Capital Wheel
Marvel at Washington, D.C.’s iconic skyline from the Capital Wheel. Located on National Harbor’s waterfront, the 180-foot observation wheel is the only one of its kind in the northeast United States. Bring the whole family or a gang of friends: up to eight people can fit into each of the 42 enclosed gondolas. From the top you’ll get a bird’s-eye view of the Potomac River and glimpse the Washington Monument, the Capitol, and Alexandria. Plan an evening ride to see the wheel aglow with 1.6 million LED lights. Photo by Geoff Livingston/Flickr.
