“Perfect area/Great choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Too many choices restaurants, bars, etc. Boat rides on the Potomac. Great place to visit. Enjoy everything within the area. Once you have parked everything is within walking distance.

“Unimpressed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

I found this unimpressive, as waterfronts go. There was not much to see. Very disappointing. It was just a few boat slips. There was a park, but nothing at all pretty, historical about it.

“A day in the waterfront”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

If you are visiting DC and are looking for something a little different from DC but not to far away, the Old Town waterfront is the place. With only a 15 min. drive from downtown, or a metro ride away, the waterfront if filled with cobblestone streets with great shops and restaurants including the Torpedo Factory where you can see artist working on there sculptures and painting. If you have a dog and happen to be looking for a place to walk him around and stop at a great restaurant, a lot of the restaurants have outside seating that allow your furry friend to join you.

“A must visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

A visit to Washington DC is not complete unless you visit old town Alexandria and the water front. The place is so nice with a nice array of shops, restaurants, bars. One of the best spots for a night life in DC area. Try a boat trip from the waterfront to National harbor. At night, this would be a very romantic boat ride.
