Loved the views and bridges to Kingman and Heritage Islands in Northeast DC! And check out this Instagram reel to see our day.
Kingman Island and Heritage Island are islands in Northeast and Southeast Washington, D.C., in the Anacostia River. Both islands are man-made, built from material dredged from the Anacostia River and completed in 1916. Owned by DC and managed by @living classroom Foundation. (From Wikipedia)
You can walk from the parking lot across the two bridges to both islands in 15 minutes with kids or you could spend hours exploring both islands!
