The Great Falls of the Potomac have drawn people to the river’s shore for centuries. To Native Americans it was a gathering place, to George Washington it was an impediment to navigation, to thousands of visitors every year it is an awe-inspiring site. Tourists have been drawn to the Great Falls of the Potomac long before there was a canal. The Great Falls Tavern carries on a long tradition of hospitality for visitors to the C&O Canal. Open year round, Wednesday through Sunday from 9 AM to 4:30 PM. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
