Summer is almost over, which means you have a limited amount of time to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather.
Instead of walking around the monuments or visiting museums, how about getting out onto the water and cruising the Potomac River? If you're looking for a family-friendly, belly-filling experience, check out Spirit Cruises' Crab Leg Feast Cruise on Aug. 16.
The cruise features an all-you-can-eat crab feast with snow crab legs and comfort food classics like herb roasted chicken, Gouda mac and cheese, corn on the cob, coleslaw, mashed potatoes and more.
The cruise is $59.50 per person. Guests board the boat at 11 a.m. and cruise until 1:30 p.m. Following the feast, guests are invited to take in the sites on the vessel's open-air rooftop. More information and tickets can be found online.
