Our family boat ride on the Potomac was delightful. The artists' studios in the old Torpedo Factory were fun to see.

My Husband nad I have been the twice and each time we enjoy it more and more. Just very relaxing strolling the street and sitting at the waterfront. For a day trip or longer this is the place for a relaxing time, good food, nice shopping and great history.

Old Town Waterfront has several unique shops, ice cream parlors, art museums and work shops. Great family area with parks and a lovely boardwalk / walking path (that connects Washington, Reagan Airport, Alexandria, all the way past Mount Vernon). Outside of DC but convenient on the blue line or by car - lots of parking available. Great way to spend a summer afternoon / evening.

Really loved this marina area right on the potomac. I had a lovely dinner and wandered around while I was waiting for my river boat cruise of the potomac. Street performers, shops, restaurants and lots of people! Saw Saturday night fireworks show over National City across the water -- great bonus.

We didn't venture into any of the many restaurants along the waterfront, but we did enjoy ourselves sitting at benches and viewing the water. Lots of energy at the waterfront and great for a nice walk.
