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.
