Did you know? Approximately half of the land within the boundaries of Navy Yard is occupied by the Washington Navy Yard. This is how the neighborhood got its name. The area not covered by the Navy Yard is packed with great outdoor activities, shops and restaurants.
Bordered on the East and South by the Anacostia River, Navy Yard has emerged from its industrial roots to become one of the most up-and-coming neighborhoods in D.C. Located just south of Capitol Hill, Navy Yard gives residents and visitors a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of D.C. proper. With a newly developed Riverfront, which includes Nationals Park, Navy Yard is a hit with families and sports enthusiasts. The area is seeing a rapid expansion of restaurants, bars and shops.
