Celebrating 100 on the C&O

This year, the National Park Service celebrates 100 years. Today marks the actual birthday and this weekend many parks, which typically have an entry fee, are free of charge through Sunday.

In DC, we are a bit spoiled with national parks surrounding us. And one runs right through my neighborhood of Georgetown.

The Chesapeake & Ohio Canal, better know as The C&O Canal is one of my favorite spots in the city. When I moved to DC, visiting the Canal, riding the historic boat, and listening to the history of the water, was one of the first tourist activities I remember. Today, the Park remains one of the places you can find me in most often. I love running along the Canal, using it as a beautiful walkway to get to retailers and restaurants, and of course as a spot to photograph the neighborhood that I love.

As part of the 100th Celebration, our mile long stretch of the Canal is getting a facelift. While it will be sad to see the Canal dry while the restoration is in progress, the repairs will work to reactivate this important part of our history, neighborhood, and city. You can learn more and add your support by visiting Georgetown Heritage.

#FindYourPark. I've certainly found mine.
