If you follow my travel posts, you know that I am sucker for vibrant buildings and old-fashioned aesthetic. Knowing how obsessed I am with quaint towns, my cousin suggested I visit Old Town Alexandria, Virginia.
True to his words, this city which is on the Potomac river and home to first president of the United States, George Washington offered a heavy dose of quaint gorgeousness! My time there was spent perusing the lovely cobble streets and seeking out interesting buildings.
While Old Town Alexandria is a beautiful place, I wouldn't advice anyone to fly in from any part of the world just to see this town. It is a really small town and there isn't much to do. However, if you are visiting Washington DC, it wouldnt hurt to hop on the metro to explore this charming town for a few hours.
Below are the beautiful sights I encoutered on my two-day visit. Enjoy...
|There is a free trolley that runs down the major commercial street, King Street. I hopped on it all the way to the Potomac River waterfront|
|Potomac River Water front|
|Few things are more gorgeous than a sunset on a river.|
Yellow brick wall
|How pretty are these homes!|
|Prettiest front door ever|
|Fall leaves and cobblestone roads|
|The framing of this street with the trees is just perfect|
|More colorful goodness|
|Back at the water front on day 2|
|Just an interesting alley way|
|Pretty sign and fall leaves|
|...and of course yummy cupcakes to end an amazing day.|
That's all folks. Hope you enjoyed my little adventure in Old Town Alexandria. Have a great thanksgiving.
