“Catch a River Taxi”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

You can take the River Taxi up to Georgetown with a half hour ride and narrated tour. Go online for coupons. You can also ride a river taxi to National Harbor and Mt. Vernon. It is right in front of the Torpedo Factory Art Center, which is 3 levels of individual studios.

“Good for a stroll”
Reviewed December 9, 2011

Not that historic (but hey, this is America), but good for a stroll before or after you visit the torpedo factory

“Very Scenic”
Reviewed December 4, 2011

I've been to the waterfront many times and have always enjoyed the calming influence of the water. Bustling Alexandria and Washington are just steps away, but the water is mesmerizing. Last night we went to see the parade of boats decorated for the holidays. The night time lighting of the waterfront, boats and Woodrow Wilson Bridge in the distance really set the tone. There are also plenty of shops and restaurants right at the water. Don't miss the Torpedo Factory for good art work!
