National Harbor

Have any of y'all ever been to National Harbor? It's on the Maryland side of the Potomac, just south of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge. I would definitely recommend checking it out if you're in the area and have a little time to kill.
I mean, there's still construction going on, and it's completely and totally created for tourists (in a city with a huge tourist draw to begin with), but there're definitely some fun things to see.
You can check out some gorgeous mosaics along the walls of the stairs leading down to the docks

Good cupcakes (though if you're in the DC area, Georgetown Cupcake is really the place to go for cupcakes)

I did a bit of blog surfing today and found your blog. I love these pictures. I had no idea that all of this existed. I live in Northern VA, so it's not much of a trip to get there. I'll have to put it on my list of things to do this summer! Thanks!
