Old Town

Welcome to historic Old Town, Alexandria. Founded in 1749, Old Town is a place rich with colonial charm. This is the heart of the City of Alexandria. Going back in time, one might have caught a glimpse of a middle-aged George Washington riding his horse up to Christ Church on the corner of Washington and Cameron Streets. Years later, Old Town became the childhood home of famed Confederate General Robert E. Lee. A slew of other notable names from both Virginia and American History add to Old Town’s lore.

Located on the western bank of the Potomac River, Old Town played an important role in the growth of our nation. It is no surprise that Old Town grew to prominence as a well-traveled port city under both British and U.S. rule. Like the rest of the communities in the City of Alexandria, the development of Old Town is tied closely to its proximity to the nation’s capital.

Since the colonial period, Old Town has established itself as a diverse cultural center and bastion of American trade, commerce, and industry.

Quality of Life:

Old Town brings you to the doorstep of colorful row houses on tree-lined streets dotted with gas lamps and cobblestone walks. Old Town is a desirable place to call home for those with an active social calendar. A wide variety of restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries, as well as boutique and retail stores, leave plenty to the imagination and ample opportunity to enjoy the finer things in life. Walk down to the Potomac and enjoy the fireworks on the Fourth of July, or bundle up for the holiday tree lighting in December. An Old Town resident would be hard-pressed to run out of things to do.

Getting Around:

Old Town is located just south of D.C. and occupies the southernmost part of the City of Alexandria. Route 1 and the George Washington Parkway (Washington Street) run through Old Town, while Washington's Beltway, I-495 is seconds away. The King Street Metro and Braddock Road Metro Stations are easily accessible and there is a free trolley service that runs from the King Street Metro Station down to the waterfront. DASH bus services are also available. Reagan National Airport is right up the road.

Airports:

Ronald Reagan National Airport:  < 5 miles.
Washington-Dulles International Airport:  < 35 miles.
Baltimore-Washington International Airport:  < 40 miles.
