Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historic Park
Walking around DC is really nice, there are some really cool areas if you take some time out to explore the city, especially the Georgetown area is a great place to spend some time.
I went to see Watergate – yeah I know, it’s a real downer, nothing to see there, but I had to go – and after that I walked next to the river and end up in this hideous mall thing, I then walk up Thomas Jefferson st. to get to M st. on My way up there I came across Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historic Park, a canal and towpath trail that extends from Georgetown, D.C. to Cumberland, Maryland, a distance of 184.5 miles (296.9 km), and which in the period of 1831 – 1924 was used to transport coal from the Allegheny Mountains to Washington D.C.
I decided to walk along the canal and explorer it for a while and then walk the rest of the way to M st. further down the path.
