The actual small town of Occoquan on the river is wonderful! There are three foodie-type restaurants, and then Madigans on the water with a TiKi bar, and lots of cute shops with nit-knacks as well as fudge and ice cream! We now have a park and a walking bridge across the falls! I am thrilled most people don't know about this place! It makes it a safe and wonderful place to live and play!
