    Great area, lots of shopping and food options! Many historical activities and sights and every corner of the neighborhood has lots of hidden gems! Go on a tour, if you have the time!

    If you like variety then old town is definitely the best place to go. Summer time is amazing because of the waterfront and the restaurants located on the waterfront provide a beautiful experience.

    Love it here, so much to do! Good eats and tons of neat shops. Take a stroll on the Mount Vernon Trail, or rent a bike and ride into DC.

    If you can't find street parking the Hilton has a garage that's $14 all day parking. Use it.

    The free Old Town King Street trolley goes between the waterfront & King St. Metro. Be forewarned: trolley can get extremely crowded & hot on the weekends. There’s a fun farmer’s market on Saturdays. Read more

    Don't just walk King Street, there are lots of places and points of interest within a few blocks of downtown.

    From the National Memorial to Torpedo Factory Art Center, King Street offers an evocative stroll through history. Yearly art festivals, house tours and annual parades bring that history to life.

    To avoid traffic on King St., take one-ways Prince (in) or Cameron (out).

    The cupcakes at Lavender Moon are really good! No line like at DC Cupcakes! They also use organic/local ingredients when possible.

    Возникает ощущение курортного городка. Много кафешек и сетевых магазинов одежды. Все дома - не выше 3х этажей

    منطقة رائعة للسكن، التنزه مشياً على الأقدام، والتسوق خاصة في محلات شارع كينغ. Lovely area for living, walling, and shopping specially from King St. boutiques.
