Find your place. Right in the middle of everything.
Del Ray is a magical place, unlike any other in Alexandria - a neighbor and dog friendly enclave. It’s known for its tree-lined streets, classic architecture and unbinding sense of community. Along Mount Vernon Avenue, cosmopolitan meets quaint, Del Ray’s historic downtown is peppered with eclectic, independently owned shops, holistic health stores and and chef-driven restaurant scene. Each Thursday, a new festival takes to the streets, while every October the ever-popular Art on the Avenue celebrates the community’s multi-cultural diversity. Del Ray also is home to the year-round Del Ray Farmer’s Market and world-famous concert venue, The Birchmere.
