Fell in love with this place. Unlike most other towns I've been, walking here, in Old Town Alexandria gave me a feeling of "Bliss". The whole town was so perfectly placed i felt. The benches by the water, where you could stare at the river endlessly, Or take a stroll at "The Torpedo Factory" which is just adjacent to the pier.
For eateries don't miss the cupcakes at "Bitter sweet", on kings Street. You could even shop for some fancy stuff here. Not to mention the endless options to dine.

this is a great place to spend the day. All kinds of restaurants, shops and, of course, the Torpedo Factory. This is a converted factory for artists of all types. Glass, Fibers, Painting, photos, and they are all for sale. You can walk outside on the board walk and see all the board and the huge Carp that hang by the edge of the deck. Bring some bread for great entertainment.

Love the waterfront in Alexandria; nice boats, great views, and lots of activity. The Torpedo Factory is a must-see if you are at all interested in art. If you are looking to have a meal, go off to the side streets; King street is very touristy.

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

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