A beautifully-preserved historic district just across the Potomac River from Washington, DC, Old Town Alexandria is the heart of the city George Washington called home. Today, Old Town’s cobblestone streets and red brick sidewalks hum with an energy that attracts everyone from presidents to pet lovers to some of the region’s best chef-driven restaurants; a vibrant arts culture, including the nationally renowned Torpedo Factory Art Center; a thriving boutique scene; numerous boat tours and water taxis; and creative cocktails and craft brews, including Alexandria’s own Port City Brewing Company. Take a couple of steps off King Street, the main throughway and one will fine tree-lined streets with historic town houses with fire-burning lanterns.
