King St. is Old Town’s main drag, and home to some of Alexandria’s best shopping, as well as top restaurants and bars, many of which feature live music.

Before or after dinner, one can take in a show at Little Theatre of Alexandria: the oldest award-winning theater in the DC Metro area.

Old Town History
Named for John Alexander, the Scotsman that finally took possession of the land, Alexandria is a city of rich American history. As with any major port, the oldest part of town is on the water and Alexandria is no exception. Dating back to 1654, the area now known as Old Town was hugely important during the colonial period as well as the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. Prior to Alexandria’s incorporation, Hugh West’s tobacco warehouse on the Potomac had been established as the region’s main site for tobacco inspection, requiring all nearby shipments to pass through, and contributing to Alexandria’s long-lasting prominence as a port city. Old Town is also a neighborhood graced by the residence of many notable Americans, not the least of which is Commander George Washington who kept a townhouse on Cameron St.
