"A Quiet Place Along The Potomac River"
Washington DC is a very busy place to visit. There are very few places in the city where you can park and stroll along tree lined curbs and hear the birds singing. Ohio Drive is one of those places. Whenever I take relatives to visit the Lincoln Memorial, I drop them off near the Korean War Memorial and tell them to visit the sites in this area and I’ll pick them up in an hour. This gives me the chance to head over to Ohio Drive where I can usually find a parking place. I can sit there in my car and listen to stress free music and watch the geese and ducks flying over the river. Springtime is Cherry Blossom season and the fragrance of the flowering trees adds to the experience. The best part is that it’s so easy to get back over to the Lincoln Memorial to pick everyone up and then head back out of town toward my home in Virginia. The “rest” stop on Ohio Drive helps me prepare for the traffic I will battle on I-95 as I head south.
