  • Always a great space to visit. The area is clean and well cared for. There’s plenty to do and to see. Many shops, and restaurants. Be sure to bring your camera because there are many locations that are very photogenic. You’ll be glad you took some photos visit in the area with your friends and family. Be sure to get down along the waterfront.
  • Nice place to visit. All most always a crowd but it's not very difficult to not feel overwhelmed if that is your thing. There is plenty of parking but street-side is very limited. The view is nice, walking path into northern Virginia across the bridge. Is a nice walk but it you can be crowded. There are plenty of restaurants and shopping. You're also only a couple of minutes away from Mgm with more shopping, restaurants and a nice casino. The outlets are just a minute away from the MGM and the a larger selection of shops so there is always something to do. Go on, still around, you will find food and shopping that you will enjoy and you will not have to go far.
