Along the Anacostia River and home to Nationals Park, Capitol Riverfront (often called Navy Yard) has quickly become the place to be. Yards Park is popular with families with its splash pool for kids, sprawling lawns, and free Friday concert series during the summer. Once you’ve put the kids to bed, check out the local bar and restaurant scene. Local micro-brewery Bluejacket offers weekend tours. Visit the tasting bar at DC’s first winery, District Winery. Enjoy fresh pasta at Osteria Morini or all-American cuisine at Scarlet Oak. Just 1.5 miles northwest you’ll find District Wharf, a brand new development along the SW waterfront which is quickly becoming the premier destination fine dining, shopping, and living.
