Gaylord National Harbor SummerFest for Families (With Pirates!)

SummerFest Package at Gaylord National for 2016

Featuring Pirates on the Potomac

This summer our family is not going to the beach for a week. Instead, we are experiencing unique adventures on the weekends at nearby jaunts.

But although Gaylord National is only one podcast length’s drive away from our house in Silver Spring, our two day/one night pirate-themed weekend getaway felt like a completely special vacation.

The SummerFest 2016 Package featuring Pirates of the Potomac getaway for families includes…

…a swashbuckling pool party with a splash pad for the littles, pool for the bigs, pirates leading games and crafts, and a patio bar for mom and dad.

…early resort check-in so you can get started on the pool partying ASAP!

…a free atrium room upgrade and included self-parking.

…options to grab a delish dinner on-site at National Pastime Sports Bar & Grill with its new Extraordinary Kids Menu, as well as a full menu and bar for the old folks!
