The Capital Wheel is not for everyone,
if you have a great fear of heights, this ride is not for you.
But we love it and we ride every December when we visit the National Harbor in Maryland.
Open year round,
42 climate controlled gondolas, 180 feet above the Potomac River,
the views are incredible.
You can imagine my surprise when I looked at the tickets and saw the word "SENIOR"!
Who said we were seniors?
WoW, I am not sure the discount is worth seeing that word...
have we gone to the other side...and when exactly did that happen?
The wheel is beautiful from afar.
It changes color frequently, all Christmas colors right now.
Each night they light the Christmas Tree located at the harbor as well.
Every hour, there is a nice little event and the tree changes colors to music.
The only thing that could have made this better was snow!
I am exhausted as I make the short walk back to the hotel,
but in the best way possible!
