Del Ray

Del Ray is located in the area northwest of Old Town, Alexandria. A community of communities, Del Ray includes Warwick Village, Saint Elmo, Hume and Mt. Ida. Like North Ridge to the west, the history of Del Ray is rooted in a rural past. Founded in 1894 as a planned community, Del Ray quickly became a bustling streetcar community. While the electric rail lines that brought on the boom have vanished, Del Ray has remained a focal point of the City of Alexandria and the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area.

Quality of Life:

Del Ray is known for its attractive, early 20th century architecture, which gives character to its navigable, gridiron plan. The community's atmosphere lends itself to a genuinely comfortable and homey living experience. Del Ray is a pedestrian's paradise and there is plenty to do for those seeking an active lifestyle. Four Mile Run Park, which connects to the Washington & Old Dominion Trail, is located nearby and is an ideal outlet for bikers and runners. Del Ray also offers an eclectic mix of boutiques, restaurants and coffee shops.

Del Ray boasts an active community calendar, which enriches the lives of residents and visitors alike. Each year, on the first Saturday in October, the community turns out for Art on the Avenue, an outdoor street festival featuring hundreds of artists, live music and delicious food. Other annual traditions include the Thanksgiving Day, 5 mile "Turkey Trot" Race, a Halloween Parade and the Holiday Tree Lighting. The Del Ray Farmer's Market, which runs year round does not disappoint. It features a great selection of local, seasonal produce as well as a few surprises like cheese, baked goods, and tea stands. 

Getting Around:

Del Ray is the kind of place where one can escape the Washington grind without having to sacrifice a connection to metropolitan urbanity. The Braddock Road Metro is easily accessible for commuters. From west to east, major arteries include Braddock Road, Russell Road, Mt. Vernon Avenue and Route 1. I-395 will bring you directly into Washington, D.C. Reagan National Airport is essentially at your doorstep.

Airports:

Ronald Reagan National Airport:  < 2 miles.
Washington-Dulles International Airport:  < 30 miles.
Baltimore-Washington International Airport:  < 40 miles.
