Lee’s childhood home and the Torpedo Factory art studio building.

Old Town is in idyllic and beautifully refined waterfront with views of the Potomac River.  Riverboats cruise and street entertainers perform on the large plaza on King Street.  Many cyclists ride the Mount Vernon Trail that passes through Old Town and ends at George Washington’s house at Mount Vernon.  More than 3 dozen of the city’s restaurants offer outdoor dining and great views of the Potomac River and bustling streets.

Conveniently located near the King Street Metro Station, many hotels, eateries, offices, and attractions line King Street in Old Town.  Market Square is one of the oldest marketplaces in the country dating to 1753; previously a slave market, it is now home to a glorious fountain, harmonious landscaping and a vibrant Saturday morning farmer’s market.  Live music at the intimate Birchmere venue is quite popular.
