It was night when we got to King St in Old Town Alexandria. The white Christmas style lights in the trees were on and they lent a little bit of magic to the old storefronts lining the street. I was immediately enchanted. We walked up and down both sides of the road and finally decided to eat at Taverna Cretekou. The food was pretty good, definitely better than average, but not as bewilderingly delicious as some of the other food I had on that trip to the east coast. I think that, while the food really was very good, the old town atmosphere really gave the experience a boost.
