I love Old Town. We’ve been visiting Alexandria for the last several years. It’s right on the water, upper King Street has a lot of the commercial retail shops, but lower down are the unique little boutiques and restaurants.
We also love going to the King Street Art Festival in September. We usually see the same artists and vendors year after year, but Alexandria is just such a nice town to visit! Traffic and parking can be a little bit of a nightmare, but we’ve been successful at finding close, free parking the last couple of years so we’ll continue to go back!
Doesn’t hurt that a Chevy’s Mexican Restaurant is 10 minutes away…double the fun!
This year we parked a few blocks away and I shot these to/from the festival. Just a little snippet of what the town has to offer. This will be a work in progress and I’ll continue to add pictures as I take them.
Random deer on the facade? No, actually it is the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. I have never heard of an Elk Lodge…Moose Lodge sure, but never an Elk. So I had to research what the BPOE stood for…
It was a rainy King Street Art Festival this year, but always worth the trip!
