Block in Old Town Named One of the ‘Most Charming Streets in America’

Next time you find yourself on the 400 block of Queen Street, take a moment to look around and realize you’re on one of the most charming streets in America.

The designation comes courtesy of Insider.com, which also included Boston’s Acorn Street, Charleston’s Rainbow Row and San Francisco’s Steiner Street on the new list.

“Alexandria, Virginia’s Old Town district is filled with picturesque, cobblestone streets and charming historic homes,” the publication wrote. “Queen Street in particular offers exquisite views and is known for being the location of America’s skinniest historic home.”
