Pet Friendly Alexandria

It's no secret Alexandrians love their pets; walking along the streets in Old Town or Del Ray, you won't get far before you see water bowls (or even free treats) set out for four-legged companions. Alexandria's adoration for man's best friend has reached new heights with pet friendly hotels, parks and even a Canine Cruise hosted by the Potomac Riverboat Company. At this rate, you'll never leave Sparky at home: Pets can even roam the halls of the Torpedo Factory Art Center or help pick out new accessories at the Dog Park boutique.
