Old Town Alexandria Offers Historic Charm



On the banks of the Potomac River and within eyesight of the Washington Monument, Old Town is the oldest neighborhood of Alexandria, dating back to 1749 and offering up more than 250 years of history and hospitality.  As an historic district, Old Town is well-known for its historic town houses, art galleries, antique shops, cultural attractions, and restaurants.  Some historic landmarks include General Robert E. Lee’s childhood home and the Torpedo Factory art studio building.

Old Town is in idyllic and beautifully refined waterfront with views of the Potomac River.  Riverboats cruise and street entertainers perform on the large plaza on King Street.  Many cyclists ride the Mount Vernon Trail that passes through Old Town and ends at George Washington’s house at Mount Vernon.  More than 3 dozen of the city’s restaurants offer outdoor dining and great views of the Potomac River and bustling streets.

Conveniently located near the King Street Metro Station, many hotels, eateries, offices, and attractions line King Street in Old Town.  Market Square is one of the oldest marketplaces in the country dating to 1753; previously a slave market, it is now home to a glorious fountain, harmonious landscaping and a vibrant Saturday morning farmer’s market.  Live music at the intimate Birchmere venue is quite popular.

Old Town Named Top Downtown

Named one of the Top Best Downtowns 2014 by website Livability, Alexandria places #5.  More than 7,000 residents live in Old Town, one of the area’s best-preserved regions in the U.S. featuring Colonial architecture.  As you walk through Old Town, you will embrace the city’s modern vibe while you walk past century old buildings along cobblestone streets.  Many of Washington’s elite live here, and the President and First Lady have enjoyed date nights in Old Town.
