Great Falls, MD

Location: 11710 MacArthur Blvd., Potomac, MD 20854
Hey! It's Natalie! After the peeps show, we drove to Great Falls, MD to have a nice picnic next to the gushing water. Access to the falls was easy -- it's just a short walk down the C&O canal and through a scenic path. Located on the Potomac River, Great Falls is as close to Niagra Falls as Maryland will get. The path winds through a lush temperate forest with a few smaller falls along the way. Make sure you stay away from the railings though, falling into the white waters could be treacherous.

Don't try kayaking here!

The path ended with a beautiful scenic overlook of the vast Great Falls. We stopped there for a while and enjoyed our Chipotle lunch. We interrupted a few romantic dates, but love conquers all. Overall, Great Falls is a great place to clear your mind and explore nature.
