Exploring Alexandria, Virginia
Historic Old Town Alexandria
It's easy to think you've traveled back in time once you see the red brick sidewalks in Old Town Alexandria. This small quaint town was established in 1749 as a tobacco port. It still has the cobblestone streets up to this day, even the buildings erected in the 18th century, and a town crier. All these things would make you think you're living in George Washington's time.
The truth is, George was a regular of Old Town Alexandria's businesses. A few of these establishments are still active open to the public such as the Christ Church and Gadsby's Tavern, which now turned into a combination of a museum and a restaurant. Washington's farm used to sell products at the Saturday farmers' market. The George Washington Masonic National Memorial was created to commemorate the former president. This magnificent architectural structure stands 331-foot-tall made from granite.
That's not all. There are also other historic attractions in Old Town Alexandria including the Carlyle House. This extravagant house that was built in 1753 has an unspoiled garden and stunning interior designs. The Athenaeum, which is a neoclassical style building established in 1851, can be found here. It used to hold a bank but is now an arts center venue. You can always join guided walking tours if you want to explore these structures. Don't miss Alexandria's Spite House, which is a favorite of Instagrammers.
Dining, Shopping, and More
If you think Old Town Alexandria is all about its old charm, you're definitely wrong. The town is also a busy and modern town popular for its colorful town scene. There are several stores, independent and national that you can choose from. You can see them on King Street, and even in small side streets. There are new shoe stores, boutiques and vintage clothing shops that will welcome you in this town. If you are into art, you can meet over 80 sculptors, painters, as well as jewelers at the Torpedo Factory. They also sell their work for a reasonable price if you want some souvenirs. There is also the Art Center which used to be a munitions factory during World War II and now turned into a haven for artists and art enthusiasts alike.
It wouldn't be hard for you to look for a place to dine along King Street because there are a lot of restaurants and bars around the area. You can also find exquisite dining and international cuisines such as Mexican and Thai near the waterfront. There are also some dining places in historic shipping buildings and storefronts. If you're looking for a place with great-tasting craft beer, the Port City Brewing Company is the place to be, or go to the West End brewery and make a special tour or participate in special events.
