See why The Washington Post recommends Alexandria's King Street as a stylish shopping destination and The Wall Street Journal praises, "The King Street area has some of the best stores and galleries in the [DC] region." Nearly 80% of the restaurants and retailers in the King Street corridor are independently owned, reflecting a thriving entrepreneurial spirit that has flourished since its early days as part of George Washington's hometown. Nearby, Del Ray's Mount Vernon Avenue is another haven for independent and eclectic shopping.

The city is a hub for home design and is a treasure trove for interior designers who come for the array of home décor shops and antiques galleries bursting with statement pieces.
