Now more than ever, we’re looking for more ways to get outside, stay active, and get some fresh air, without venturing too far from home. From sunrise to sunset, visitors are invited to explore the 528-acres of inviting woodland trails, sports fields, picnic shelters, playgrounds, and more at Cabin John Regional Park. Throughout all four seasons ice skating, tennis classes, camps, recreational sports and more are just a few of the activities held in this quiet oasis just steps from the lively shopping, dining, and entertainment opportunities at Cabin John Village.
The mornings are turning crisp, the leaves are tinted golden, and you can almost taste the cinnamon and pumpkin flavored pastries on display at your favorite coffee shop. As sweater weather begins and we transition from summer to autumn, Old Town Alexandria embraces more than just the change in weather. With charming brick homes framed by auburn and amber colored trees, the city itself seems like it was designed for the season.

There is no doubt that Alexandrians love dogs. A quick stroll down the sidewalks of Old Town, and you’ll see shops, artisans, and restaurant owners have left an assortment of water bowls and biscuit jars outside their doorsteps, welcoming dogs to take a break, and sometimes even to come inside.
