These are unique and offer a myriad of items from clothing to antiques...and ice cream :-)..the trolley tour gives you the highlights of the shopping area..and it is easily reached on foot.

My friend and I spent a few hours walking through the heart of Old Town. Quite a few nice shops to browse around. The business owners are friendly. Nice residential homes intermixed between the shops. Easy parking along any of the parallel streets. A nice way to spend a lazy afternoon.

Go downtown and walk the historic section. There are many buildings, churches, cemeteries and landmarks to visit. This is a must do item on any trip to this area.

Great for walking the old streets, seeing old buildings, liked the quaint stores and shops. Did not dislike anything.

Parking was fine; even a few spaces on the streets, but limited to 2 hours except Sunday. Similar in character to Alexandria outside DC, but much less commercial. Several buildins well worth spending time visiting, specialised local shops, a pleasant walk on several streets, including residential areas between sights. The kind of town that would be attractive as a home, if you like historic surroundings.
We vited on a Sunday when it was quiet for both traffic and people, but there were enough stores and cafes open to make it interesting and pleasant.
If you are passing within say 50 miles, do go and see it. A great town to serve as a base for seeing 4 major civil war battlefields, including the town itself (twice) due to its strategic position between Washington DC and Richmond.
