"Breathtaking views of Potomac River"
Along Canal Rd runs the Potomac River. Directly adjacent to it is a trail where you can fish, rent bikes, or paddle boats and do other outdoor activities. No parking is allowed on the street however. Canal Rd is a great escape from the hustle and bustle of DC. Towards the Clara Burton Pkwy, Canal Rd passes quaint neighborhoods where houses sit on hills overlooking the river. Like Rock Creek Parkway, Canal Rd is a great therapeutic drive after a long stressful day at work.
