Old Town has it all - the waterfront with its marinas, luxury town homes & condos, party The Dandy & the Waterfront Festival. Walk up King for great food, history, shopping & more!

Hey, if you like water and haven't seen it for a while, this will do. I don't think it is anything special, however. We live in the area and go to Alexandria regularly, but never are moved by this waterfront. If you are a Washington visitor with limited time, this wouldn't be on my top 50 list for you.

Great place to hang out to relax, enjoy some ice cream, to walk, and for the scenery. You can take a river boat tour for a fee, and also explore some shops and restaurants here. If you enjoy aviation, this is a good place to watch planes closer and lower as they land at nearby Reagan Airport.

Potomac River winds past Old Town's main streets. Take a walk and enjoy all the historic buildings. Waterfront Torpedo Factory is an artist's showplace, Ford's Landing is location of million dollar homes.
