Alexandria Shopping



The secret is out! The go-to DC destination for boutique shopping is Old Town Alexandria, with The Wall Street Journal praising, "The King Street area has some of the best stores and galleries in the 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, while nearby, Del Ray's Mount Vernon Avenue is another haven for eclectic, locally owned storefronts. Fashionistas flock to Alexandria for high end shoes and unique clothing finds, while home décor shops and antique galleries burst with statement pieces. Delight in tasty treats from olive oils to award-winning hot chocolates, pick up pet friendly goodies, or peruse handmade jewelry at the Torpedo Factory Art Center.

Click here for a full list of Alexandria shops.
