Old Town Alexandria is a historic neighborhood drenched in colonial history! It's known for its adorable cobblestone roads and red brick sidewalks, quaint boutiques, its walkable waterfront, and amazing seafood from locally-owned restaurants. A perfect mix of a walkable, chic neighborhood and historically influences, Old Town was George Washington's hometown and is still home to a handful of historic sites and homes with several museums like the Alexandria Black History Museum and the National Inventors Hall of Fame and Museum. George Washington's home, Mount Vernon, is also only nine miles away from Old Town!

Throughout the neighborhood, there are plenty of local restaurants and cafes that frequently put out water bowls for all the local pups. Old Town is so pup-friendly, Animal Planet named it one of the most dog-friendly cities in the United States! Additionally, there are plenty of pup-centric businesses, like a Canine Cruise on the Potomac River, pet supply stores, and groomers.

King Street is the busiest road in Old Town and is home to many of the local businesses and restaurants, so this area will have both high automotive and pedestrian traffic. However, because of the presence of so many businesses, this is where you will likely find complimentary water bowls for you pups on those hot, summer days! Additionally, because this area can get rather touristy and there are typically large amounts of pedestrians, there are plenty of sidewalks for your use. 

As mentioned before, much of Old Town has cobblestone roads and red brick sidewalks. Because of this, there may be more cracks or uneven areas than other neighborhoods with more modern paving. Make sure you and your pup take it easy and remain aware of the changes in the terrain.

Heading west in the neighborhood, particularly along King Street, you will notice a steady incline, however, nothing in the neighborhood should be too steep where you and your pup may be uncomfortable.
