It's no surprise that it has been cited as the fittest city in the country for several years running; residents and visitors get a lot of exercise simply getting around the city! Even if you plan on taking the Metro, bus, or driving (not recommended) to get downtown, you will often find yourself walking for the remainder of the day.Washington has three major natural flowing streams: the Potomac River and its tributaries the Anacostia River and Rock Creek.[40] Tiber Creek, a natural watercourse that once passed through the National Mall, was fully enclosed underground during the 1870s.
