While Gen Z has decided, correctly, that Alexandria is superior to D.C., at least one local attraction is headed to the further shore for much of this year.
The Tall Ship Providence is planning to move to The Wharf for the “2022 cruise season” while construction is ongoing at the Senator John Warner Maritime Heritage Center in Old Town.
“The ship will spend most of the 2022 sailing season at The Wharf in Washington, D.C.,” the Tall Ship Providence Foundation said in a press release. “Providence will be in Alexandria, VA for select events throughout the summer and return home early November.”
The new center will eventually be the permanent home for the Tall Ship Providence and will allow the ship to host new educational programs and increase the number of visitors — though the Foundation did have to scale back some ambitions for the site.
“The Maritime Heritage Center will continue to serve as an economic development attraction attracting visitors from across the country and the world,” the Foundation said.
In the meantime, Tall Ship Providence Foundation President and CEO Clair Sassin said the move to The Wharf can help boost the ship’s profile.
“Providence’s visit to The Wharf gives us the opportunity to increase the awareness of the ship and the new Maritime Heritage Center to different audiences while generating ticket sales in a high foot traffic area,” said Sassin. “Our goal was to keep Providence in the DMV for the 2022 season and we are delighted to be working with the team from The Wharf.”
