We LOVE Old Town!! And we chose our home because it's centrally located in the Old Town/Braddock area. Weather and shoes permitting...you can walk EVERYWHERE! There are scores of restaurants, shops, parks, museums and antique stores to explore.
Founded by English and Scottish settlers in 1749, Olde Towne is older than the United States! The stately, old homes and streets are beautiful, and a few are even a bit famous. Less than a 10 minute walk from our home is the longest continuously running farmers market in the country (Saturday mornings in front of city hall, 301 King St). Or take the free King St Trolley to the waterfront for oysters, ice cream and a stroll through city history in the breezeway of the old WWII Torpedo Factory (now a community art center). There's always something great to do, or see--or eat--in Old Town!

My husband, Aaron, and I are military officers. We travel a lot and love to see new places and, especially, to try new foods. I was raised all over the world, so I don't think of myself as being 'from' anywhere in particular. Aaron grew up in a small town in northern California, and part of the reason he joined the military was to see more of the world and meet people from different backgrounds. We run, bike, climb, hike and like to go to museums, food and art festivals, and to be active in our community.
