OLd Town has many interesting shops and fine eateries in various price ranges. A stroll along the waterfront is most relaxing.

My wife and I stayed in Alexandria for 2 days. Very pleasant little town, with a lot of shops and restaurants.

If you are in DC, you must visit Alexandria! I had never been there before this trip and did not know what I was missing. Excellent food, intriguing shops and fascinating history. Be sure to start at the visitor center and then go to The Lyceum, Christ Church, The George Washington Masonic Memorial and Fort Ward. You will have an amazing time. It is a short ride down the Metro, get off at the King Street station, on either the Blue or Yellow lines. Except for Fort Ward, every other attraction in town is an easy walk.

All my friends from out of town love coming here to visit! There's tons of history in this city, great restaurants and shops and a wonderful walking trail along the Potomac.

One of the 3 cities that made up the Original DC (Georgetown and Washington were the others). Old Town is a delight.
