By TAXI: Every cabbie knows where the boats dock in Georgetown.
By METRO: (subway)... Foggy Bottom is the closest Metro stop, but it's a 15 min. walk from there. However, the frequent and inexpensive ($1) Circulator bus runs along nearby K St. NW to within 1/2 block of the dock.
By CAR: Use the interactive map above. There is plenty of pay-parking in Georgetown. (GPS: plug in 3100 K St. NW, Washington, DC 20007).

2) The National Mall DOCK This location is harder to find, so leave extra time! - At the intersection of Ohio Drive SW and West Basin Dr. [nearest landmark is the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial]



By TAXI: Ask the driver to take you to the FDR Memorial (or better yet: "Franklin Roosevelt Memorial"). Get out there, look for a river, and walk towards it!
By CAR: There's free parking along the sidewalk, but scarce after 11am on summer days (and after 9am during Cherry Blossom weekends).
By CIRCULATOR ($1 shuttle bus): Catch this at a dozen points around the National Mall, at Union Station, in the hotel district in Northwest DC, or at various Metro stops. Get off at FDR Memorial stop.
By METRO: It's at least a 20+ min. walk from the Smithsonian stop (though a very beautiful one). So you'll be ready for the cool river breeze, and cold drinks, after you step onboard!
