Why locals love it

Old Town Alexandria, with its historic buildings and cobblestone streets dating from the 1700's, is well worth the metro ride into VA on the blue metro line. Besides the numerous restaurants, boutiques, and gift shops, the must-see venue is the Torpedo Factory Art Center.

Why you should visit it

It’s a former (you guessed it!) torpedo factory that has been turned into three floors of local artists' studios that you are free to visit. Peruse the paintings, drawings, pottery, and photography, engage with the artists themselves, and don't forget to check out the waterfront area outside.
