Just across the Potomac River, soaring 175 feet above the waterfront at National Harbor, is The Capital Wheel, set to make its official debut next month.

Visitors can get to and from National Harbor and Alexandria using the National Harbor Water Taxi. 

From its location at the end of a pier overlooking the river, The Capital Wheel will offer riders a view of the nation's capital "from a new perspective," according to National Harbor developer Peterson Companies. Sights visible from The Capital Wheel include the White House and Capitol, the National Mall and Arlington Cemetery.

With its 42 closed, climate-controlled gondolas, each seating eight, The Capital Wheel will operate year-round.

The Capital Wheel will host a variety of public, corporate and private events, with catering available by Wolfgang Puck, whose team will provide creative seasonal concessions.
