Getting Around National Harbor
There are many ways to travel around National Harbor, Maryland, during your stay for APA's 36th Annual Congress, May 15-19. Make your plans in advance.
The National Harbor Circulator bus is the city's newest mode of transportation.

If you enjoy the water, than travel on the Potomac River and see the waterfront from a different angle on a water taxi.
