Be a traveler, not a tourist when you visit the Washington DC Metropolis and take it all in like the locals. One of the best parts about traveling is exploring and experiencing everything you don’t get to at home. You probably have an idea of what all you’d like to see and do on your trip, but what about where you’ll dine? From street food to brunch and fine dining, Alexandria has it all. Check out this list of our favorite Alexandria area restaurant categories!
Brunch: Weekend brunch is the thing to do in Alexandria, as it’s an all day affair. Start your day with free breakfast at the Holiday Inn Express Alexandria- Fort Belvoir then head to King Street order off the lunch end of the brunch menus. From traditional brunch foods to unique and eclectic, your Alexandria brunch options are endless.
Outdoor Eats: Summer is the season of patio wining and dining. Grab a bite at a local pub, indulge in classic dishes on a rooftop balcony, or humor that sweet tooth by stopping at an ice cream shop patio.
Presidential Dining: So you’re in the DC area and want to eat like the locals….why not try a few presidential hotspots! Dine at the Obama and Bush families favorite local eateries or try out the pubs and taverns our first president frequented.
