Cruising can be a great experience while on vacation, but some travelers may not want to commit to a lengthy excursion. To experience an introduction to the world of cruising, tourists may instead want to take a short family travel trip or girl's getaway near Washington, D.C., where there are fun river boat cruises along the Potomac River.
These lively and historic ships offer passengers the ability to enjoy a delicious dinner, entertainment and scenic views for a memorable evening on a fantastic getaway. According to the Potomac Riverboat company's website, these daily embankments cover a wide range of one-day cruises to choose from in and near the city, such as a dog-friendly trip, a child-friendly pirate-themed adventure, or a private party cruise complete with fireworks.
After taking a cruise, travelers can check out some of the other great things to see and do in Washington, D.C. History fans can make plans for a free visit to the Lincoln Memorial or one of many exhibitions at the Native American, Asian Art, or Air and Space museums.
