Falls Church

During the Civil War, the Potomac River marked the boundary between the Union and the Confederacy, making the C & O canal a vital artery. Heavily guarded by the Union army, it was used for moving both troops and critical supplies. Today, during the spring and summer, the National Park Service offers daily canal boat tours beginning at Great Falls (Maryland side), abroad the Charles F. Mercer. A $6 ticket will gets passengers exceedingly scenic views of the Potomac and the chance to envision war-time attacks on the canal by notorious Confederate raiders like John Mosby (the Grey Ghost) or Jeb Stuart.

Make sure to check out the great falls as you walk along the Boardwalk! Beautiful view and the sound of the water will keep you there for some time!
