The Old Town Waterfront is a neat location. All the sights and sounds of a marina with restaurants and shopping. Great place to sit and enjoy the water.

It was a pleasant evening to go to Old Town so we had dinner and strolled the main street from the metro station to the docks. Lots of boats were out and it was a pleasant time.

Take a job as the fog settles on the potomac. Running past the sailboats and their towering masts as you imagine the waterfront as it was 100 years ago.

It was great to look out at the waterfront. Wasn't a huge public area where we were in front of the Torpedo Factory.

Visited on a Sat night, and the restaurants, shops, and sidewalks were all teeming with people. Should have allowed more time to enjoy it.
