Old Town Alexandria, Virginia

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.
Selfie time
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
Mint condition 
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.
