Named #1 Best U.S. Travel Destination 2018 by MONEY magazine, Alexandria’s neighborhoods are rich in history and modern culture. Old Town Alexandria hums with activity, from its restaurants, boutiques, intimate museums, and waterfront events. The walkable and bustling King Street is the heart of it all. The Torpedo Factory Art Center is a former naval munitions plant converted into publicly accessible art studios, and is an unique visit. Explore Old Town Alexandria’s brick sidewalks and 18th- and 19th-century buildings of Old Town by foot or hop on the free Old Town trolley. Alexandria’s Del Rey neighborhood is home to fun independent shops and restaurants like Junction Bakery and Bistro or Kiskadee. Step back in time at Mount Vernon, the home of George Washington, which puts a full day of activity just a short drive away.
