Visitors are welcome at the park daily, and an estimated 200,000 visit the park each year. It holds the honor of being named one of the top dog parks in the country and the region.

Now that Vice President Kamala Harris is finally in her official DC home, it appears she’s ready to give up her former digs. The VP and her husband recently moved into Number One Observatory Circle, which is where the Vice President traditionally lives.

With a number of upscale restaurants and gleaming new apartment buildings, it’s easy to see some of the newest and most modern additions to the Southwest Waterfront. The neighborhood, however, is really a combination of both the old and the new.

Another local attraction, Capital Yacht Club, has been around for well more than a century itself. A regional theater called Arena Stage has been in operation for more than a half century.

As the Southwest Waterfront neighborhood was eventually redeveloped, a building called River Park became one of the city’s first
