What people are saying about National Harbor

Nice area for children to play. The carousel is the big attraction but there is also a small playground. The toys o the playground are a little worn and the buttons don’t all work but my little one enjoyed it. The flex pass is nice to deal with changes in weather.

The all day Carousel pass is worth it with small children. Plus there is a playground. Parking is close by and the Capitol Wheel (Ferris wheel) is also close by.

The carousel is good but the venue tries to sell over priced stuff to kids waiting in line which made my kid melt down when I said no.
