Connecticut Avenue/Dupont Circle – This main thoroughfare is filled with stores that offer traditional clothing such as Brooks Brothers, Ann Taylor, Gap, Filene’s Basement, and many others. This area also offers shoppers a number of coffee bars, restaurants, art galleries, boutiques, and many others.

Georgetown – This is the central shopping area where stores line the streets and side streets. There are unique boutiques as well as well-known chain stores. This crowded shopping area is usually extremely crowded, especially on weekends when there’s a great deal of drinking going on. This location is a great place to have dinner, go shopping and stroll.

Old Town Alexandria – The Old Town neighborhood is a beautiful and scenic spot along the Potomac River lined with antique homes as well as lots of wonderful shops and fantastic dining opportunities. This area, however, is also often crowded and it can be difficult to park. This shopping area runs from the Potomac all the way to King Street Metro station. Just as at Georgetown, weekdays are much more enjoyable to visit these shopping areas.
