Old Town Alexandria: historic charm, boutique shopping & nightlife

With its cobblestone streets and gaslit lamps, Old Town Alexandria is a wonderfully-preserved historic district set along the Potomac River. Stroll down King Street, Old Town's thoroughfare, to explore the boutique shops, outdoor cafes, and art galleries that add to the town's charm. Visit the Museums on Market Square, such as Gadsby's Tavern Museum or the Carlyle House, and discover the area's exquisite 18th-century architecture. Or, take a boat cruise from Alexandria, VA to visit DC's famed monuments along the Potomac. After the sun goes down, Old Town's historic spaces are abuzz with live music, award-winning restaurants and classic pubs, ideal for a night out on the town.
