The Spite House (in blue), built in 1830, is 7 feet wide, about 25 feet deep and a whopping 325 square feet in two stories. It is located on Queen Street in the Old Town district in Alexandria, Va. The builder of this 1830 home in Old Town Alexandria wasn’t trying to keep up with the Joneses. In fact, he constructed what may be the narrowest house in the country, at just 7 feet wide. The purpose? To keep loiterers from entering his alley, hence the name. The tiny abode has attracted considerable attention, even being featured on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” But the curious can’t go inside, because people actually live there. 523 Queen St., Alexandria, Va.

Take the water taxi to Georgetown in DC, National Harbor, and Mount Vernon all from the Alexandria water front. The views from the water are some of the most spectacular and seems to be a best kept secret.

Shopping

Great shopping right at the bottom of King Street a block from the water. The lower area of King Street is closed to vehicular traffic, making this area a lovely spot to walk around. Fun clothes and accessories for Men and Women with brands like Vineyard Vines, Tori Burch, Gretchen Scott and many more.
