Best of East Coast: Alexandria, Virginia

Today on the blog we are going on a road trip! Have you been to Old Town? I joined the Best of the East Coast Link Up, held by Savannah at The Always Blog. Do you know of its beauty and history? No? Well, Let’s begin!


  • A Historical Place you need to visit is Gadsby’s Tavern.
  • A place you should eat at is Bugsy’s Pizza cause I love it and if you are a Lord of the Rings fan definitely hit up Bilbo Baggins Restaurant. I went there a few weeks ago and it is very cozy.

I used to take the bus to the metro station right at the entrance of Old Town and then hop on the trolley and go to Old Town.

One of many ice cream shops that can be found in Old Town. I especially love getting ice cream from Pops. If you ever come visit Old Town this is one of the places you need to get ice cream.

Once you reach to the bottom part near the waterfront you can stop by Starbucks, grab a drink and then walk around the Water Front. Because we are so close to the Capital and there are many businesses nearby you are going to see many people dressed up, except me of course.

The one spot everyone loves to see is the Waterfront. Once you walk all the way down through Old Town you will eventually make it there. You can sit on a bench and eat ice cream or walk around the boardwalk with friends.
There are boats that people take. The boats can take you to DC or to the National Harbor, but I’ve never done that.

The Torpedo Factory is another must see. Although it used to be a torpedo factory today it is an art center. You get to see different paintings and sculptures made by artists in the area.

The George Washington Masonic National Temple.
Once you leave Old Town this is what you see. This is also one of the ways you enter Old Town. I used to stop around here to get onto the trolley.
