“Great place to relax”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

There are lots of benches right on the water where you can relax. And you can see the D.C. capitol building from there.

“A beautiful, revitalized riverfront!”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

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

“Love This City”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

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.

“Beautiful area for afternoon / evening stroll”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

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.

“So much to see!”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

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.
