“Boutique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Lots of small boutiques here with better than average tourist goods and plenty of fine restaurants. I liked the Union Street Pub. Lots of ice cream shops within a block of Union St and King St.

“Lots of little shops & fun walking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

There are some historical places as well, but it's fun to just wander the streets and stop in at the shops or stop to eat. A good place to visit in spring or fall especially.

“Put On Your Walking Shoes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Quaint town. Brick sidewalks...about 2 miles long. Many shops and restaurants. Very pet friendly. You can take the free trolley up and down and hop on and off as much as you want when you get tired of walking.

“George Washington hang out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Well worth a day trip. Lots to see and do. You can rent bicycles and cruise The Mount Vernon Trail or peddle the surrounding streets checking out cobbled stone street neighborhoods. There are plenty of great places to eat and funky shops to browse.
