Unpack a Summer Picnic at Great Falls Park

Living in the DMV, there’s no shortage of notable points of interest to enjoy. Head into DC to take advantage of the nation’s capital or stay nearby to enjoy a few of Reston’s favorite hotspots. Or, opt for some of the most beautiful views in the country with a visit to Great Falls Park

This national park is a favorite of folks throughout the DMV, so you’ll want to arrive early to get your choice of picnic area or parking space. Put on your comfiest hiking attire, grab your camera, and get ready for a day of fun. Pack a picnic or grab a snack while you’re at the park—there are even grilling spaces available if you’d like a barbecued lunch break. And, of course, you’ll be able to enjoy the beauty of Great Falls Park, filled with Potomac river views, hiking trails, and picturesque waterfalls. You can count on seeing a cute pup or two walking with their humans while you wander the park!
