So fun to check out the waterfront and enjoy the beauty! You can see National Harbor right across the water.

Nice to walk around. Usually some street artists. Ice cream. Park close by. Hard to find parking. Can take free trolley from King St Metro station.

“Great shopping and pubs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

We walked around with family and the women did some shopping as the guys checked out different old pubs in the area. Some very nice dining during the night time as well and most everything is within walking distance. We love going back again and again

“Walk the waterfront”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

It is nice walking the path through Old Town. There are street musicians and artists doing caricatures. You can catch a water taxi here as well. There are two small parks in Old Town. The one a bit north is the larger (Founders Park ?)
