Boutique Shopping

Extraordinary looks good on you.

The secret is out! Old Town boutiques, where fashionistas flock from near and far to uncover high end shoes, designer clothing and eye-catching home décor, comprise what The Wall Street Journal classifies as "some of the best stores and galleries in the [DC] region." Nearly 80 percent of the restaurants and retailers in the King Street corridor are independently owned, including the chic shops of the Old Town Boutique District, and the nearby eclectic storefronts Del Ray's Mount Vernon Avenue.

Pause between brunch and bike rides along the waterfront to experience a place where flawless outfits materialize, budding chefs meet unique cookware and dazzling baubles are non-negotiable. Alexandria is a haven for handmade art and antique galleries bursting with statement pieces, as well as creative outlets like the knitting Mecca fibre space for those looking to create something extraordinary of their own.

Experience a shopping destination like nothing else, intermixed with dining hotspots and centuries of history to create an unforgettable vacation.
