The home of much of Americaís colonial heritage, Alexandria was a bustling port town founded by Scottish merchants in 1749. Itís colorful past is still alive in restored 18th and 19th century townhouses, churches and taverns, on the cobbled streets. On the revitalized waterfront, where artisans display their wares, is the popular Torpedo Factory, an old warehouse converted into artistís studios, often open to the public. The shops and restaurants alone would be worth the trip for sightseers, but the strong sense of history and charm pervade every street of Old Town. This elegant, historic village has a Metro stop on King Street and good access to downtown via the George Washington Memorial Parkway. Price Range: $600,000 Ė 4,000,000.
