Eat, shop, love!

Eat, shop, love.


Valentine’s Day is a day for everyone…spoil yourself, get your girls together for Galentines and head to an Anti-Valentine’s Day party,  plan a traditional, romantic dinner with sunset views, or party and gamble the night away. National Harbor is the one stop shop for love as unique as yours.

This Valentine’s weekend, you have the opportunity of the added excitement of people watching and unique costume viewing. A Japanese anime convention called Katsucon will be here for their  annual 3-day fan event held at Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center.

Pro tip from a local: Make a reservation & factor in extra time for parking or take an Uber or Lyft. The costumes are amazing to look at!
