“Loved the Tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Street performers, cute stores and restaurants. The riverfront was quaint and the town had a lot of character.

“Great place spend some time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Quaint streets in this neat little town. Great shops & restaurants. You can even pick up tours down the Potomac River. We went there for the two days we were in town. Took two friends and they loved it!

“We keep going back...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Have been to Old Town a few times in the past few years. Always a ton of things to do. There are plenty of restaurants, coffee shops, small retail shops up and down King Street. Always great to walk down by the water near The Torpedo Factory. The factory is a great place to walk around in. Check out some of the art. Very nice artwork up there. Also, go down to one of the piers, on one of the bulkheads, there is a 5 foot diameter Osprey nest with a Mother and 3 or 4 babies. Neat to watch them.

“Interesting if you like history”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

The historic aspect was interesting to me. You can take a walking tour or just stroll and see what you encounter. I was not impressed with the restaurants because I like small Mom&Pop places. You find that here but there are some good, somewhat pricey places.

“Good shopping and nice restaurants.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Pleasant strolling brick streets. Because it was very warm, we appreciated the ice cream shops a couple of times.
