USS Potomac

USS Potomac

The USS Potomac, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's "Floating White House", is a vibrant part of the East Bay Waterfront that provides insight into FDR's life and legacy.

The Potomac is open for docent-led dockside tours mid-January through mid-December. Tours are approximately 45 minutes long. Guests watch a 15-minute video in the Visitor Center prior to the tour. The video provides a glimpse of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s use of the Potomac, emphasizing the impact of his administration on the country and the Potomac restoration story.

We hope you enjoy our work.
