Water taxi was closed but we enjoyed walking with great river view. If you are in the area you should visit at night as well. You can see town's lighting and ferris wheel

Not sure the boat trips are functioning but all the boats are around, plus the ducks, geese, sea gulls. Very pleasant and safe to walk around. Most people had masks on

Nice area to explore during covid times. Park north of the busy part of old town was more appealing for relaxing, but this spot was great for proximity to restaurants, torpedo art factory, and ice cream!

Alexandria has the feel of an old-time seaport, but with wonderfully modern amenities. The restaurants are plentiful, and the crowds are manageable.

I live in Old Town and the Waterfront is lovely, but I would recommend venturing from the official (decked) portion of the waterfront into one of the many adjacent parks. Sometimes the official waterfront designated area can be a bit crowded in the summer. And definitely take a moment to go inside the Torpedo factory located here.
