Here are the 5 must stops for this Zip Trip to National Harbor:

#5: The Peeps Store
The only location in the DC area is at National Harbor. You'll find lots of sweet options, from the iconic marshmallow chick to Mike and Ikes and Peanut Chews-- no shortage of treats! Thsi colorful, fun store also sells merchandise for popular candy brands.

Located on the Potomac River, Redstone offers rotisserie chicken, seasonal fish, and perfectly-aged steaks. It's great for a casual lunch, dinner date or just drinks on the patio overlooking the water.
