4.4/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web
At Old Town Waterfront, stroll scenic riverside paths, dine at waterside restaurants, visit museums, and take themed boat tours. Located along the Potomac River, the area often bustles with street performers and musicians, and features exhibits of arts, archeology, and boats. Have a meal at one of the fine-dining restaurants at the site, walk or cycle along the 29 km (18 mi) trail, or explore centuries-old artifact collections. Don't be surprised if you meet a pirate aboard one of the cruise ships. Take time to ride a hybrid bike or bring man's best friend aboard for a canine boat tour. You can board a water taxi here for direct access to the National Mall, Nationals Stadium, and National Harbor.
