    The address is interesting. I'm guessing it will be in the parking lot near the merry-go-round.

    I hope this works out, but the location seems questionable. On any given evening or weekend, the traffic congestion is very high. With limited parking and garages that fill to capacity, the threat of ICEing seems very high.
    Getting off the Beltway for a quick charge and back on is not straightforward, nor quick.
    But, it does fill a nice gap on the 95 corridor.

    Yeah... I was thinking the same thing. That area needs a slew of destination chargers. Not a Supercharger. I'd still rather have all the approaches to be covered... like Waldorf/301, Germantown/I270, Centreville/I66, Ashburn/267.

    Maybe it's more for publicity?

    According to Nation Harbor site that parking lot (and garages) is $3 an hour.

    Edit: The address for that lot is 137 National Plaza, but there does not appear to be any grassy area next to a parking lot at the address listed in the request.

    You're right about traffic congestion. That right turn onto Waterfront sometimes takes forever. For off-peak travel, the location is quite easy to get to.

    Tesla owners supercharging may be offered a waiver on parking fees, such as occurs at the Savannah airport location.
    I strongly disagree that the location only needs a destination charger. This spot is relatively easy to access from the Beltway. We'll need numerous such superchargers in urban areas across the country in the near future, both for through-travelers and locals.

    When I first saw National Harbor on the updated 2017 Supercharger map I anticipated it being located at the Tanger Outlets, guess not.

    If that lot does fill up often I can see it now. Travelers passing through the area check the app and see that all the stalls are available, great. Get off the Beltway, head to the lot only to realize all the stalls are ICEd. Pay their $3 bucks as they leave and start the search for an open public charger nearby or head to Laurel 30 miles away.

    Only negative is it has dicey characters after midnight. Good news is there's a cop for about every ten people because they built this place smack in the middle of a horrible neighborhood in Prince Georges County. AKA SOUTH SOUTH EAST DC.

    Additionally the casino doesn't help as it draws in the poor to be exploited with odds that are illegal in Las Vegas. Maryland casinos allowed to boost their advantage by lowering blackjack payouts

    The waterfront is nice and the restaurants are typical tourist trap D.C. For the locals it's still Oxen Hill seedy characters and the waterfront just highlights the wealth disparity.

    Glad they put an SC there either way. Just need to check the concealed carry laws for MD. ( pretty sure you can't carry there ) Taser and MACE should be OK

    Funny. Same negative perceptions as Laurel. To my knowledge there have been no murders or other negative activity involving the Superchargers. Not even any ICE'ng in my experience. Now there was a shooting over at Montgomery Mall before Tesla shut down that "Supercharger". More charging options are always better.

    Last time I was there some dude on a motorcycle was so cheap he tried to run the security carousel in the picture above behind a car and his girlfriend got taken off the MC by the drop gate arm. Since its MD you don't have to wear a helmet and she got scalped from her eye brows back behind her ears. It was scary seeing that as we were knocking back cocktails at the water front. I saw and heard her scream and knew it was serious. We called 911 and Fairfax County fire and rescue responded 15 minutes before the PG Fire and Rescue showed up. Unbelievable since FCFR is across the Potomac River in another state. We aren't going back there for any events anytime soon.

    So, stupid question: how does a Supercharger/Tesla know a stall is occupied by an ICE'ing car? I was under the impression it had to be plugged in. No?

    You're right, Tesla won't know. So if all the stalls are ICEd, the Tesla app will show that all the stalls are available, when they are not.

    The nearby casino multi-story parking garage has a section reserved for EV level 2 charging, clearly marked with ground paint and signs.
    Last month when there I saw every EV spot occupied by an ICE vehicle, even though there was available parking elsewhere in the garage. The reason: the EV spots are next to the casino entrance, and used by folks that couldn't be troubled to walk an extra 50 feet.

    Answring the concealed carry part: I'd even be careful having a firearm in a lockbox. There have been cases of LEOs harassing legal passage through the state for those with firearms in luggage by checking the driver's permit. You can google details. MD is very unfriendly to this.
