After touring the Mabel Lee Walton House yesterday we finally made it to our first stop…
Alexandria is seriously one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. I love all the town homes, the statues, the general atmosphere, and most of all King Street!! You can find anything on King Street…there are places to shop, work out, eat, and parking isn’t really that bad!! We ate there two nights and I just loved walking around and didn’t mind getting a little lost while driving because the scenery was just so beautiful.
This was a little shop we parked in front of our first night in town. It had the most adorable home furnishings in it.
Our first night we ate at Bertucci’s. The food was amazing but were already a little warm from walking around but they sat us by the brick pizza oven and we literally sweated our way through dinner. Not the most fun experience I’ve ever had but the food was worth it.
We started with this amazing bread and oil and I don’t know what was in the oil but I loved it!!
I had the Cajun Pasta for my entree and it had chicken, andouille sausage, and huge shrimp in it. I was totally craving a good pasta and it definitely hit the spot. YUM!!
If I’m being really honest, and I always try to be, we were sweating so much that we only ate half our meal and took it back to our hotel room to eat later. The food was fantastic sitting by that oven was no joke!
The next day we went into Washington DC by way of the King Street metro station, which needs better parking options, and on the way we saw this gorgeous building. It is the George Washington Masonic Memorial and is just gorgeous!!
That night we came back from DC and ate at the Flat Iron Steak and Saloon.
It looked cute and people were coming out of it raving about it so we gave it a shot. To start we got the Parmesan Tots. These are loaded mashed potatoes, fried, topped with parm, and served with three different dipping sauces. They made the whole meal. YUM!
For my entree I got the Steak and Shrimp Fajitas. That steak is some of the best steak I have ever eaten. It was juicy and just fell apart in my mouth. Whoa!
So pretty much we just ate our way through Alexandria and loved every minute of it. Our first hotel was in Alexandria also but we were actually going to Washington DC. I would highly suggest staying in Alexandria over DC if you get the chance to go. It’s a quick commute, budget friendly, and has amazing food.
So where am I going to next?? Here is a clue (although I’ve already mentioned it a few times. HA!)…
