The very restful and melancholic view of the Old Town Waterfront is a great balm for any person looking for peace. We arrived in the area just about sunset and we were able to catch the great view of the waterfront - sea and birds and boats. What a day! What a view! What a way to remember a place.... More

Whether you are with family, friends, or a loved one, this is such an idealic spot to visit. In the daytime it is alive with people and merchants and performers. While at night, it is a a tranquil and romantic spot.

The end of the shopping/dining district in Old Town Alexandria is an nice area to sit and watch the water go by. There are not many ships going by at night, but with the right companion, that would be an irrelevant fact.

This is a very pleasant place for visitors and residents alike. On the weekends and holidays, there's often entertainment. The views over to Maryland are lovely and it is right next to the Torpedo Factory, a must visit for all.

The Waterfront in Alexandria provides wonderful views of the Potomac, open space and good restaurants in the Old Town area. If the weather is good you might see crew shells out on the river from the City's boathouse on Madison Street. A picturesque opportunity to wander about and take in the sights. At night you get a great view of... More
