Old Town Boutiques
When the Washington Post dubbed Old Town as a stylish shopping destination and The Wall Street Journal agreed, hailing the King Street corridor as having "some of the best stores and galleries in the [DC] region," Alexandria's shopping scene was posted permanently on the map of must-shop retail destinations. King Street's dozens of blocks of independent retailers radiate from the city's historic Market Square, where the excitement of acquiring something new bursts from every corner.
Shoppers are drawn to the shops of the Old Town Boutique District, where high end shoes and chic home décor are tucked into elegant settings. Dozens of independent retailers give the phrase "personal shopping" a new standard, offering not only unique collections of clothing and gourmet goods, but shopkeeper's expertise.
