Old Town might not sound like the hip, cool place to bring a wild and curious bunch of kids. But, it’s just that…and more! From kid-friendly farmer’s markets to consignment shops galore, there are so many hot spots in this Alexandria, Virginia enclave that you’ll need to make multiple trips just to soak it all in. Here’s where to get started.

Medieval Madness

Older kids (ages 6 and up), and their grownups, who are obsessed with knights and damsels in distress should ride over to Medieval Madness where guests are treated to sword fights, 14th century food (without the “funk”), and a live show dedicated to making patrons laugh while imparting a little historical wisdom.
