Southern Living Magazine has something of a longtime love affair with Alexandria, from highly ranking Old Town’s Kismet Modern Indian (111 N. Pitt Street) in best restaurant list to fawning over its “Christmas charm.”

Most recently, the magazine published a list of 15 Best Things to Do in Alexandria, Virginia.

Most of the list is Old Town specific, recommending a visit to fibre space (1319 Prince Street), visiting the Old Town Farmers’ Market, and grabbing a coffee at Misha’s (either at the 917 King Street or 6 Prince Street location).
