Founded in 1749 as a port for tobacco warehouses, and located just across the Potomac from Washington, DC, Alexandria like the rest of Northern Virginia, has been greatly influenced by its proximity to the nation’s capital. It’s is known for its rich and complex colonial history and it’s quaint suburban sensibility. Prospective residents will find a myriad of price points across Alexandria, from single family living to condos near the metro, 18th century rowhouses to modern apartment buildings, restored mansions to quaint bungalows, this area offers a little bit of everything.
Historic Old Town is a popular center filled with local boutiques set against a landscape of colonial-era architecture and charming cobblestone streets. It’s nationally recognized for its preservation of colonial-era architecture and a thriving arts and retail scene. It’s a go-to destination for locals, historians, professionals and tourists alike. Here you will find countless restaurants and small businesses, vibrant artist studios housed in a 20th century Torpedo Factory, you can frequent the weekly farmers markets or see a festive parade, and Alexandria’s Waterfront Park offers views of the Potomac River and National Harbor.
Old Town isn’t the only jewel of Alexandria, little sister Del Rey, is an eclectic neighborhood that boasts a flavor all its own. White picket fences and American Foursquare homes are the norm in Del Rey. Mom and pop shops, quaint yards and tree-lined streets along with a walkable charm are what draw residents to this neighborhood. In contrast, the neighboring Potomac Yard serves as a buzzing suburban retail destination. Modern townhomes and condo developments are all within a stone’s throw of Target, Home Goods, auto dealers and a massive movie theater complex. Here you will find all of the modern and necessary conveniences, and plenty of parking.
This historic city is more than just the sum of its parts. Its popularity partly comers from its accessibility and diversity, whether you're cruising along the Potomac River by water taxi, biking the aptly named Mount Vernon Trail, or riding by metro on one of the many blue and yellow line options running through Braddock Road, King Street or Eisenhower stations, Alexandria is an expansive area with a great deal of culture to offer its residents. And the recent addition of Capital Bikeshare stations in Alexandria means that quiet neighborhoods, like Del Rey, have gotten much easier to explore for city dwellers and tourists.
