5. Marvel at the Market Square Holiday Tree
Cattycorner from The Alexandrian, find the height of holiday cheer at Alexandria’s Market Square at 301 King Street, where the city’s seasonal tree cuts a sparkling silhouette against the evening sky.
6. Pick up Stocking Stuffers at Spice & Tea Exchange
Across the street from Market Square is Spice & Tea Exchange, the perfect spot to pick up tiny gifts like tea blends, salts, candles and more. Mask up and scour more shops for stocking stuffers or Hanukkah gifts, such as Shop Made in VA, Made in ALX, Intertribal Creatives, King Street Souvenirs, The B.E.S.T. Gift Shop, Old Town Sock Co. and Alexandria’s Visitor Center.
7. Step onto Side Streets for A-door-able Displays
Ramble along the brick-red sidewalks off King Street and onto Old Town’s charming side streets. Try S. Fairfax and Lee Streets, or forge your own festive path.
