POPULAR RESORT OPENS ITS SEASON WITH GREATER
ATTRACTIONS THAN EVER
Pleasure-loving Washingtonians flock in large numbers to the cool breezes of Colonial Beach.
The people of Washington are realizing more and more every year what a delightful resort they have within easy reach of their homes.
Colonial Beach embraces all that could be desired for both rest and recreation. It is situated on the banks of the beautiful Potomac River, sixty-six miles
from Washington. It is bounded on the East by the Potomac, and on the West by Monroe Bay, having a Bathing Beach of four miles, which combined
with the finest fishing, crabbing, and sailing tends to make Colonial Beach one of the most desirable places known.
The four-and-a-half-hour sail on the bg steamer St. Johns, one of the handsomest steamboats in excursion service in the South, offers a most pleasant
wav to view the Potomac by daylight.
Leaving her wharf here daily at 9 a. m., except Monday and Saturday, the steamer, after a short stop at Alexandria, makes no more stops until she reachesJ
the summer-time Mecca ot the people of Washington Lolonial Beach.
In addition to the morning trips daily, the St. Johns leaves Washington every Saturday at 2 :30 p. m., giving an opportunity to spend Sunday at Colonial
