Old Town Alexandria is a vibrant community. Festivals and Farmers Market’s are a common activity during the weekend.  Weekends in Alexandria offer a wide variety of farmers markets, where Old Town’s Market Square bustles with the same energy as the days when George Washington would send down his produce from Mount Vernon. Whereas Del Ray’s market kicks in early Saturday mornings, the West End and Four Mile Run showcase their fresh goodies on Sundays. Find fresh flowers for your home or a jar of jam to take home as a creative souvenir; but first make sure you have enough room in your suitcase.

Westmoreland Terrace- Quiet Arlington Condos

Westmoreland Terrace

The Westmoreland Terrance Condominiums are a garden-style, private entrance condo community located at 1314 North Fort Myer Drive along North Ode Street in Arlington, Virginia. Located just outside of the Rosslyn business district and the greater Courthouse Metro area, this sprawling condo community spans 4.2 acres and offers a quiet and more subtle living alternative compared to the surrounding metropolis. Built in 1947 and converted in 1982, the post-war cinder and brick facade buildings offer parking and storage amenities, and 8 out of every 10 condos features a private laundry facility.

The Westmoreland Terrace Condominiums house 149 condo units and there are 159 unassigned parking spaces available to its residents. Residents have a choice between one and two bedroom units, and the condos are also pet friendly, a rare feature compared to nearby residential communities. Finally, each unit features thick walls and a choice between red and white oak parquet floors.

The Westmoreland Terrace condos have anywhere between 14 and 16 units per building and the layout of the property captures the rich history of Arlington County. The surrounding acreage maintains many of the original trees that existed before the building was constructed, some in excess of 150 years old, and the property is reminiscent of an older, less urbanized ideal. The Westmoreland Terrace Condominiums boost a tucked-away feeling and yet the property is within several yards of US 50 and is only an 8 minute walk from the Rosslyn Metro station. The property is both well maintained and well managed. Through its consistent and quiet manner, this calm and peaceful condo community has thrived for over 60 years.

About Virginia’s Economy

Virginia has highly diversified economy based upon many sectors including agriculture, manufacturing, technology and government. Traditionally agriculture was the mainstay, but farms now follow other sectors in employment and income generation. Tobacco, Virginia’s historic cash crop, is still the leading agricultural product in Virgina. But, grains, corn, soybeans, peanuts, sweet potatoes, cotton, and apples (especially in the Shenandoah Valley) are all important.

Wine production is a new and growing sector and has gained some importance; but the major sources of agricultural income are now poultry, dairy goods, and cattle, raised especially in the Valley of Virginia.

Virginia’s access to the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean mean that the marine products play an important role in Virginia’s economy. The Chesapeake Bay is especially rich in shellfish such as oysters and crabs.

In addition to marine resources, Virginia has mineral resources. The most important mineral in Virginia is probably coal. But Virginia also produces stone, cement, sand, and gravel.

Virginia hosts several important transportation hubs. Roanoke is a center for the rail transport equipment industry, and a high proportion of the nation’s shipyards are concentrated at Hampton Roads , especially in Newport News . Norfolk is a major U.S. naval base, and Portsmouth is a U.S. naval shipyard; Hampton is a center for aeronautical research.

Northern Virginia is sort of a Silicon Valley East. Northern Virginia is one of the largest concentrations of computer communications firms in the U.S. In addition many government contracting firms and national non-profit associations are headquartered in Northern Virginia. Tens of thousands of Virginians work in government, especially in the District of Columbia or in nearby “Beltway” suburbs of Northern Virginia, including Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church and Fairfax County.

Other leading industries include tourism and the manufacture of chemicals, electrical equipment, and food, textile, and paper products. Virginia is for lovers!

King Street Trolley — a great way to get to know Old Town Alexandria

King Street Trolley

Around Old Town Alexandria, parking can sometimes be a hassle, (unless you want to pay to park in a garage), but a great way to explore Alexandria is to take the Metro to King St. and then hop a ride on the King St. Trolley. There is no charge to ride the trolley, and it makes stops about every two blocks between the King St. Metro and the Potomac.

The Trolley was designed to complement service by the National Harbor’s new Water Taxi. The National Harbor is located across the Potomac in Maryland and is the site of a brand new convention center. The convention center and many restaurants are already open in this brand new area landmark. Additionally boat service is available up and down river from the Strand in Old Town. The length of this circuit can be walked in about 20 minutes, so many choose to take the trolley to the Potomac and then walk back to the Metro through Old Town.

Today the Torpedo Factory Art Center is a world-renowned art center with three floors of open studios and galleries. Here, one can observe artists and purchase original artwork. The Torpedo Factory Art Center is on the Potomac waterfront. Street musicians and entertainers play nearly every night weather permitting, and tourists and locals alike enjoy walks down by the waterfront.
