    Old Town Alexandria

    Across the Potomac River from Washington, the Old Town neighborhood in Alexandria, Virginia, dates back to 1749, making it the Washington area’s oldest neighborhood. What started out as an 18th-century port filled with tobacco warehouses has become a picturesque area brimming with boutiques, restaurants, antique shops and museums that attract scores of weekend visitors. But Old Town’s amenities are just as rewarding for residents, who enjoy its walkable, relaxed lifestyle and easy commute into Washington. The architecture includes styles ranging from Georgian and Victorian to mid-century modern, and residential offerings include row houses of varying sizes, as well as classic storefronts converted to homes.
