A luxury resort, retail, dining, entertainment and gaming experience just minutes from Washington D.C.
Far from the Las Vegas Strip, MGM Resorts International opens its $1.4 billion National Harbor casino and resort just outside the nation's capital this week.
MGM designed the first casino resort just outside Washington, D.C., to complement the city of monuments across the Potomac River. It has a 308-room hotel and spa, plus restaurants with well-known chefs. High-end retail also is planned.
MGM National Harbor has been developed on 23 acres near Interstate 495 and north of National Harbor's waterfront district. It is located near the Woodrow Wilson Bridge and approximately 10 miles (16 km) from Washington, D.C.
MGM is aiming to attract international travelers, as well as U.S. tourists.
The casino resort opens Thursday night in Oxon Hill, Maryland, at 11 p.m.
