Escape to Daingerfield Island for a Million-Dollar View

Nestled at the mouth of Four Mile Run, just a mile north of Old Town Alexandria, and a stone’s throw off the historic Mount Vernon Bike Trail is the next home for your beloved sailboat or powerboat, canoe or kayak. Washington Sailing Marina, located on Daingerfield Island, is home to over 600 Potomac boaters, a renowned summertime Sailing School, four local collegiate teams, and six sailing clubs. Whether you are seeking a leisurely kayak tour at sunset or looking to finally flaunt your sailing skills, this site indeed deserves a spot on your itinerary. This Marina hosts a spacious deck to sit and watch planes land with a backdrop of the glittering Washington D.C skyline, bring your dog to dash around on the grassy point, or enjoy a delicious meal and cold beer at the popular seasonal grill, Burgers for Sail.
