Old Town Alexandria is a very charming place for a walk. We were glad we started at the tourist information office, because you can buy a "Key to the City" coupon book that pays for itself if you go to only a couple of places. It's got historic sites, restaurant and shopping coupons. The Old Town has a lot of interesting stores mixed in with a fair number of historic places worth seeing. They included a wonderful old pharmacy, a couple of house museums, churches, as well as antique stores and gift shops. It's a lot of fun.
