Summertime fun at Potomac waterfront in Old Town Alexandria

Summertime in Alexandria is loads of fun. Tourists descend on our fair city, but we’re glad to have them as our guests.

At the Torpedo Factory and Potomac in Old Town

One of the places that you have to visit when you’re in town is also a favorite spot of residents: the Alexandria waterfront. The docks behind the Torpedo Factory Art Center are always bustling with activity. Every few paces you’ll find a street musician, street magician and other entertainer. There are numerous restaurants here: most of them quite nice.

Admiral Tilp offers river tours in Alexandria VA

If you’re looking for a little fun on the water, you might want to take a cruse on the Admiral Tilp. The Admiral Tilp is docked here at the end of King Street and Union Street. The Admiral Tilp departs on the hour, so if you miss her, she’ll be back. The Admiral Tilp offers a narrated tour under the Woodrow Wilson Bridge, past National Harbor and down to Jones Point. The on-board guide provides a historical and contemporary context to what you will witness on board.

The Many Musicians of Old Town

If you like street music, then you’ll find no better spot to wander than Old Town Alexandria. Through-out the week, especially on weekends, musicians gather in Old Town at street corners and near the waterfront to play music for tips and applause. Most are highly talented professionals, some are learning to play their instrument in front of a crowd. I enjoy them both in different ways.

Here in Old Town Alexandria, you’ll find everything from a lonely saxophone, to steel drums to an entire band. Below I’ve collected a few photos to give you a taste of Old Town’s many musicians.


This foursome was phenomenal singing and playing old time mountain music. It was a great throwback to the Carters because the gal in the front on the guitar was a great singer. The banjo player and bass were on point, and I love the texture that the mandolin (seated behind guitar) provided.

Glass Harp

The glass harp as played by Jamie Turner is an old town treat one simply must hear in person to appreciate.


This miss not only strummed the harp to perfection but also sang beautifully.

waterfront musicans

At the waterfront behind the Torpedo Factory there are often a few soloists serving up music for passers-by.

banjo and guitar

I heard some fine picking and strumming from this pair.

A walk on the waterfront

Fortune Teller in Old Town

I took a walk on waterfront in Old Town Alexandria VA last night. The temperature was absolutely perfect as was the humidity. There were crowds, but it wasn’t too much. I saw folks rushing to the Nina Dandy and other boats for an evening of cruising. There were several street musicians playing King St. At the pass-thru under the Torpedo Factory, a gentleman was playing the saxophone. And down along the water a street magician was showing his stuff. The balloon men were there creating animals and entertaining the children. A fortune teller was portending the future. A parrot rescue group had a flock of parrots and similar birds which were available for photos.

But then a light misting rain started to fall and the crowds scattered. At first they hid in the Food Court and on the trolley. The musicians were the first to pack, and they packed quickly to ensure their instruments weren’t damaged. The mule drawn carriage pulled off and soon the streets were quiet. We walked around a bit, enjoying the peace and quiet. And then we were gone as well.

Waterfront of Old Town Alexandria

The Potomac River separates Virginia from Maryland and DC and as it makes it way south from Great Falls to the Chesapeake Bay it passes Old Town Alexandria. In days past, Alexandria was a working port filled with transport ships of sail and steam. Today, only rarely to working ships make their way to or even past Alexandria. Today the docks are filled with pleasure craft and the docks are filled with tourists instead of workers.
