To cool down and relax, especially during DC's muggy summers, head to this riverside park. A favorite among locals, Hains Point is a peninsula of land jutting out into the confluence of the Potomac River and the Washington Channel. Let the cross breezes revitalize you as you stroll along the river, picnic or take the kids to the playground. Best of all, kids love climbing "The Awakening"—a huge statue of a man seemingly climbing up out of the ground.
