Old Alexandria is a great place to go to get out of the city for a little bit. There is so many cute shops and restaurants to explore. All the buildings look very old and are so photogenic. This is a great place to go to get away from many of the other very touristy places in the city. Its located right on the Potomac so there are great views of the water, and in the warmer months you can watch all the boats go by. This is one of our favorite places to go and shop and we highly recommend King St for many of our favorite stores and restaurants.
