Season's Greetings from Old Town Alexandria

Season’s greetings to our readers! We hope you’ve been enjoying all Old Town Alexandria has to offer this holiday season – from our traditional events like the Scottish Christmas Walk Parade and Alexandria Holiday Boat Parade of Lights, to shopping and dining in more than 200 independent boutiques and restaurants. There’s still time to enjoy Waterskiing Santa on Christmas Eve and First Night Alexandria on New Year’s Eve.

We are proud that Alexandria was named one of America’s Top Holiday Towns by USA Today in 2016! And in 2017, the Scottish Christmas Walk Weekend was named one of The South’s Best Christmas Festivals by Southern Living and the Alexandria Holiday Boat Parade of Lights was named one of the Top 10 Best Holiday Parades by USA Today

Watch our video for a sense of our city’s nostalgic holiday wonder. Cheers!
