Occoquan Bay National Wildlife Refuge

Who knew that you could travel just 30 minutes outside of the heart of Washington D.C. and be in the middle of such a beautiful refuge among diverse wildlife? Named after the Dogue people’s word for “at the end of the water,” the Occoquan Bay Refuge is a beautiful piece of land at where the Occoquan River and Potomac River meet. It’s filled with grasslands, wetlands, and woodlands that bring you back into nature. Stepping into the bottomland forest will give you instant relief from the typical hot summer day as the cool, shaded air encapsulates you. Starting off your morning in the grasslands of the refuge will give you the perfect opportunity to catch a beautiful sunrise like the one below. This refuge has many different trails that can give you many different experiences.
