    Hands-On Day Trip

    If your little ones love to get their hands dirty, we’ve got the perfect day planned for you at National Harbor.

Gaylord's Ice! Show is a must-see! Put on a parka (provided for you) and walk through over 2 million pounds of carved ice- all kept at a chilly 9 degrees! A wonder holiday experience every family would enjoy.

Warm up after a trip to Ice by stopping by the Harbor Treats kiosk, located on the pier! Enjoy hot cocoa, cookies, hot apple cider and SMEEPS! (S'mores, but instead of marshmallows, you roast PEEPS!)

After your SMEEP, if you need more PEEPS in your life, visit the PEEPS store! This candy wonderland will have your kids loving the marshmellow-y goodness!

The cherry on top of any day at National Harbor is a ride on The Capital Wheel! After tuckering out your little ones with an active day, they’ll love the thrill and wonder of a ride 180 feet in the air.
