“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

If you're visiting the DC area, please make sure you take the time to visit the waterfront. There are so many vendors that set up during the spring and summer. Restaurants are pretty incredible. Alexandria makes it's best effort to do events that include locals and tourists alike. The Torpedo Factory is fun for the whole family, watching artists create their masterpieces. We really enjoy going down and seeing the guy with the parrots and the guy that does music out of crystal glasses. There is a balloon guy there that makes the kids all laugh.

“Waterfront Alexandria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

The waterfront is a wonderful area. The boats docked are very colorful. The area has plenty of seating so you can just sit and reflect by the water.

“Great place to be...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Must visit Torpedo Factory art center - at least 60 studios in a converted old factory - beautiful contemporary art straight from the artists. Waterfront scene is always exciting...
