Potomac Falls

Potomac FallsThe Potomac Falls are located in Montgomery County west of Washington, DC in the Great Falls Park. This succession of surging waters developed as rocks on the Potomac River which used to be called the Wissahickon formation and consisted of resilient metamorphic boulders. These large stones are said to date back to the late Precambrian Era and approximately 750 million years old. The falls formed when sea level plunged during the last Ice Age.

If you are going on a trip to the Potomac area, just call Affinity Airport Sedan to pick you up from any airport in D.C.

The Great Falls and rapids stretch two-thirds of a mile towards the Potomac. The river drops around 76 feet above this distance. Since it presented a main obstacle to boat traffic in the 18th Century, George Washington ordered the construction of the Potomac Canal in 1784 which took 16 years to finish.

Potomac Falls is managed by the National Park Service. The Potomac including the falls is within the territory of Maryland. You can see scenic views from both the Maryland and Virginia sides. The Billy Goat Trail on Bear Island is accessible from Maryland. It offers picturesque spectacles of the Great Falls as well as vantage points of Olmsted Island which is accessible from Maryland. The area is ideal for outdoor leisure pursuits like hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, and whitewater rafting.

The Potomac narrows down considerably as it passes over the falls and through Mather Gorge which lies on the borders of Maryland and Virginia. Heavy downpour and snow on the watershed upstream generate white-water floods. These normally swamp the rocks and endanger the nearby park and visitor center. That is why the facility was constructed on top of stilts. In fact, the pillar at the Virginia area marks the level of the 1936 Potomac River Flood.

There were numerous efforts to build canals around the Great Falls. The canal was initiated by George Washington. Afterward, the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal was put up on the Maryland section and eventually connected the Potomac tidewater with Cumberland City. The Chesapeake and Ohio also utilized the Potomac Falls as feeder and source of water supply. It has been abandoned since then.

Woodley Gardens

Woodly GardensWoodley Gardens is one of the larger neighborhoods in Rockville, Maryland and was developed during the early 1960s by Monroe Warren, Sr. and Monroe Warren, Jr. The elder Warren built the Kennedy-Warren and Tilden Garden apartments in the District. He also developed numerous residential units in Rockville. Woodley Gardens earned the distinction of being Montgomery County’s original pre-planned community. To achieve this, the developers used a new zoning category. It allowed them to design the whole neighborhood instead of individual lots in a specific locality.

Washington Grove

Washington D.C.This “town within a forest” is located northeast of Washington D.C. Washington Grove is a dappled rural community nestled underneath an ancient forest; it was developed around trees as one of the early planned garden cities. The concept of a garden city was thought of by Ebenezer Howard in 1898 to deal with pollution problems and overcrowding in urban areas.

If you plan to visit Washington Grove, call Affinity Airport Sedan for a ride. Sit back and enjoy the sights. Our dependable transport service will guarantee you a very comfortable trip.


Washington Grove was founded by Methodists who came from D.C. and were searching for a summer revival camp to escape the summer heat. It started out as a tent city like Coronado, with religious advocates who found shelter under canvas roofs. The group held its first renewal meet on July 4, 1873, and 258 tents were laid out. A Sacred Circle was established the following year. Tent sites were set up in ridges around the perimeter-long avenues where 10,000 visitors were said to have attended.

Throughout the years, more tents were put up and those who attended the two-week revival remained there for the entire summer and even until autumn. The canvas panels were eventually replaced with wooden materials, which later on became Gothic-inspired chalets with sharp outlines of roofs. By 1920, Washington Grove became a permanent neighborhood with families living in very small houses. Washington Grove was listed in the National Register of Historic Places for its classic layout and unique history in 1980. The town council maintains complete control of purchasing and leasing lots.

Oasis of Tranquility

Original residents describe Washington Grove as an “Oasis of Tranquility and Rustic Jewel.” Developers gave priority to growing trees before constructing houses. The council enacted resolutions emphasizing management of growth and property ownership that will prevent future owners from monopolizing and expanding historic structures. After the Second World War, all development stopped and left a huge buffer that surrounded the town. Streets were named after trees, while roads were constructed behind homes in the back alleyways. The East Woods and West Woods have been classified as wildlife sanctuaries; these are the only forests in Maryland owned by the local municipality.

Washington Grove is governed by a Council of Citizens with six elected councilors and a mayor. Two council meetings are conducted every month, with local citizens always encouraged to participate.

About LeDroit Park

LeDroit Park was founded in 1873 by Amzi Barber, a wealthy businessman, who named the area after his father-in-law. The community was one of D.C.’s first suburbs and was advertised as a romantic neighborhood. It featured narrow, tree-lined roads that were given tree names, as opposed to other streets in the District which were generally named after numbers, letters, or states. And landscaping was a major focus, intended to attract residents. The community was even gated to promote security and an air of separation for residents.

Despite its creation as a segregated area, by the 1940s many elite African Americans also called LeDroit Park home. Today, the neighborhood is extremely diverse, representing a countless number of ethnic groups.

LeDroit Park today

Visitors often marvel over the neighborhood’s Victorian mansions and homes designed by famed architect James McGill. Of his 64 homes built in the area during the mid 1870s, no two were identical. Fifty still remain today.

The neighborhood prides its self on engaging residents and promoting beauty and development. The area is home to the Park at LeDroit, which includes a playground, dog park, and Common Good City Farm, a community garden and agricultural education center. The park is so impressive that Prince Charles of Wales stopped by during his 2011 visit to the States. In addition, the community is enhanced by colorful murals painted on many walls throughout the area.
