If you like to enjoy all of Northern Virginia's awesome views and rich history, then there really isn't a better place than Old Town in the heart of Alexandria. With some of the oldest buildings in the country it offers a unique style to going out and a much more affordable and accessible alternative than the neighboring DC venues.
A little known treat for people visiting for the holidays or exploring historic Old Town might want to check out Chadwicks on Strand St. The old English style Pub offers American fare with an underrated wine selection that goes great with the unique blend of colonial era architecture and modern urban shops nearby. Chadwicks, while not the largest and most upscale of its surrounding neighbors, is conveniently located by public transportation and minutes away from bustling King St. A perfect place for those looking for easy alternatives to the crowded downtown D.C. landscape.
