    Default Is there anywhere cool to stay near Potomac MD or surrounding areas?

    Hey all,

    We are driving from Boston To Potomac MD, then onto Asheville NC. We have to stop in Potomac to drop something off and figured we would spend the night somewhere in the area. I do not want to go near DC and the congestion. Google shows that there is not much in the area so I was hoping someone here might know somewhere. Any help would be great.

    Peace,
    Rainyb

    Are you looking for a motel/hotel/hostel/bed&breakfast suggestion?

    There's a place on this website - should be a link right on this page - for accommodations and rental car searches.

    Default As a last resort.....

    Hi, and Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum.

    You might like to check out the RTA reservations tab on the green bar above. However, if you are unable to find suitable accommodation, have you thought of contacting the people where you have to drop off something, and see what they can recommend. After all, there is nothing like local knowledge.

    Default If you're looking for things to look at....

    Potomac Maryland is very near the Great Falls of the Potomac:

    There are viewing platforms on both sides of the river; this shot was taken from the Virginia side.

    On the Maryland side is the "Chesepeake and Ohio Canal National Historic Park" (the canal itself starts in Georgetown).

    As far as lodging; IAD (Dulles airport) is on the Virginia side, a little bit upriver. Should be scads of lodging options on that side of the river.
