Ride the Capital Wheel at National Harbor


View image on Twitter

On Saturday, August 23, the Straight Eights are planning to meet at National Harbor to ride the Capital Wheel (tickets provided for members by the club) and have lunch at Fiorella Pizzeria E Caffe. National Harbor’s observation wheel offers a 12-15 minute enclosed gondola ride with amazing views of Washington and Alexandria from 180 feet in the air!

We plan to meet at the top level of the Fleet Street Parking Garage and park there at 10:30 am. We will distribute Wheel tickets, and you can take your ride at any time. We plan to rendezvous for lunch at 12:30 pm and plan to eat as a group. A trip to National Harbor is not complete without taking a look at the Atrium and Lobby of the Gaylord Hotel and Convention Center, and a group of us will do just that. There are plenty of shops to explore, the sculpture “The Awakening” is located there, and nearby are the Tanger Outlets. You could also elect to extend your day and ride the water taxi to Old Town Alexandria. It should be a good outing and a chance to see your club buddies at a place where there is as much or as little to do as you like.

Please RSVP by Wednesday, August 20, to if you plan to attend.

Here are some links that will give you more information and directions; (We will use the Fleet St. Parking Garage, top level)
