Trip Report Old Town Alexandria mini report

My family and I spent a late afternoon/evening in Old Town Alexandria this past weekend. After reading many reports about Old Town here on Fodors, I was very excited to unexpectedly be presented with the opportunity to "go mooch around" as my sister and I say. We had a great time - what a lovely area. It totally lived up to expectations - particularly the Torpedo Factory. We got there just as most studios were closing so we just peeked in the windows which was fine for us as we were not really shopping. Saw some beautiful and diverse works. Very worthwhile.

We ate at Landini Brothers which was very nice and suited all in our group well including the teenagers. The Italian food was very good though not great but we had a wonderful time.

After dinner we continued to "mooch around" in some of the shops including the most completely over the top store I have ever seen. The amount of stuff on display was simultaneously outrageous but somehow not overwhelming. There were long strings of crystals hanging everywhere, artificial snow brushed into every nook and cranny, funny signs, cool jewelry, psuedo-antiques. I wish I could have figured out the name of the store. We took pictures because it was a truly unique setup. Even merchandise that I had seen elsewhere looked more appealing. I can't even begin to explain how extraordinary this store was to my eyes.

We had a wonderful evening and I can't wait to go again as we didn't scratch the surface of Alexandria.
