Parking is easy if you find the garage under the famer's market. From that central locale you can spend an afternoon or early Saturday walking the cobbled streets to find all sorts of shopping. Your walk may bring you along the river, adding an extra touch of fun. With Georgetown becoming more chain store and losing it's mom-and-pop window shopping appeal, Old Town is our choice for tourist choice for unique shopping experiences in the general DC area.

Visited Old Town Alexandria at the end of a business trip in search of a gift for my family. The shops were evenly spaced between restaurants with menus that made my mouth water. The shop keepers were all helpful and friendly. Glad I made the trip and enjoyed my time here.

Love the restaurants and stroll along the shops at the heart of the Old Town. It was a great place to just be relax and have a drink after a long day. Unlike other parts of Alexandria, this area has its own charm.

Great seafood and shopping! So romantic in the evening. The hotel can shuttle you around or you can take the free trolley ride.

Many local shops and excellent restuarants. Buses to take you around the area. Waterfront is so cool!
