Old Town Alexandria

A blend of historical interests, boutique shopping and trendy eateries, Old Town Alexandria gives a preview of everything Northern Virginia has to offer its residents. And now with a bit of celebrity (the hit PBS show Mercy Street is based on the town), there are specified tours and excursions to delve into the show. But it is not only the check-off points that make Alexandria great. The community showcases the local art scene through music festivals and venues that are highly rated and artist showcases at the renowned Torpedo Factory. There is always something to be entertained by. –LN
