It's a heck of a view from 175 feet up. And starting today, this view can be all yours.

The Capital Wheel opens today at the National Harbor, offering riders on 42 gondolas sweeping views of the region from the National Harbor in Prince George's County.

The wheel will open year-round — the gondolas are climate-controlled, after all — from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., and each ride will cost $15.
