“Romance in the air :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Visited the Old Town Waterfront on a beautiful cool September evening by water taxi from the Gaylord. Walked several blocks just enjoying the atmosphere. Saw several street vendors selling various art forms and lots of people walking their dogs. Many of the restaurants have outdoor dining and it was fun to walk by and enjoy the different aromas. Had dinner in the area and while waiting for the return taxi, snuggled on a bench, watching people and boats, listening to a unique musician playing. Fun times!

“Lazy day walking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Spent a whole day wandering the waterfront, visiting shops and restaurants. This is a fun place to visit all year round. I lived in DC from 1987-2001 and always enjoy going back to visit and see all the new sights. It is always getting better.

“Great Views”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

It is a charming, historic waterfront. I am not into art galleries and the Old Torpedo Factory art gallery was the star attraction there. I much preferred strolling up and down King Street, but the waterfront is worth a quick visit to say you've done it.

“An Evening Stroll Along The Waterfront”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

We weren't there long, but Alexandria has the most beautiful waterfront. You could dine at the Chart House and enjoy it even more. There were also boat shuttles/tours (although we didn't do those). Alexandria and the Waterfront is definitely a must see.
