Driving down the peninsula, it looks like you're driving at the water level. The road is slow to drive on because there's a lot of non-vehicle traffic. Lots of bikes, rollerbladers, joggers, and walkers.
When you get to the end, you'll find the statue. Washington DC is to the left so we could watch people stuck in 395 traffic; Ronald Reagan National Airport (Arlington, VA) is on the right so we could watch planes land.
There is a playground about 50 yards away for kids to play on once they realize they're not going to climb up the arm. There are also picnic tables if you bring food. It's a popular spot and buses regularly stop by.
