Where We Live: Del Ray, Alexandria

November 4, 2020

Del Ray is a popular neighborhood in Alexandria, north of Old Town and adjacent to National Landing, a newly branded neighborhood encompassing parts of Pentagon City and Crystal City in Arlington and Potomac Yard in Alexandria.  

With an old town feel, it’s main street is Mount Vernon Avenue which is dotted with independent shops, the Del Ray Famers Market and a booming locally owned restaurant scene. Our favorite time to visit is for weekend brunch. Del Ray is also known as “Well Ray” for its large community of holistic health businesses.

Eclectic shops and signature events like Art on the Avenue contribute to an artsy ambiance. Del Ray hosts the popular "First Thursday" events, in which every first Thursday of the month a new festival takes to the streets, attracting visitors and locals alike in search of family fun and a splash of local culture.

Del Ray and adjoining Potomac Yard are appealing neighborhoods to move due to their community feel, public transportation and relatively affordable prices.  It’s perfectly situated just 2 miles south of Ronald Reagan National Airport which can be easily accessed via the Braddock Road Metro station.

Quaint neighborhoods dating back to the early 1900’s like Beverly Hills, Warwick Village, Rosemont and St. Elmo offer single family detached homes as well as row houses and duplexes.  Homes in Del Ray range in price from $350,000 to over $2M.
