When I travel I love to walk around so I get to see the places and the people. Old Town Alexandria was not an exception... It's small and has all the charm of DC in every single building.
One of the things that called my attention was that historic building have a plaque that categorizes them as historical and even have a serial number for them. House and buildings alike are very well taken care of and you can tell that everyone takes pride in them so they like to keep them as neat as possible.

This is another place around DC that next time you visit of it you visit for the first, must be on your To-Do list because of it's rich history and great food.
