Season’s greetings! We hope you’ve been enjoying all that Old Town Alexandria has to offer this holiday season, from experiencing time-honored events like The Campagna Center’s Scottish Christmas Walk Parade and the Alexandria Holiday Boat Parade of Lights to shopping enchanted streetscapes and dining in independent eateries. The seasonal fun continues with Waterskiing Santa on Christmas Eve and First Night Alexandria on New Year’s Eve.

We are proud that Alexandria was recently recognized by Oprah Magazine as one of the Most Magical Christmas Towns Across the World and by USA Today as one of the Most Festive Christmas Cities in the U.S. With twinkling lights shining in the trees, chef-driven restaurants tucked into 18th-century buildings and decked-out doorways dotting historic streets, Old Town Alexandria sparkles with seasonal charm to lift your spirits.

Watch our video to get a taste of Alexandria’s nostalgic holiday wonder, then come experience it for yourself!
