"Up and Coming Mixed Bag, but Mostly 'Up' Near bohemian Delray section of Alexandria"

The Braddock Road Metro area of Alexandria is going through something of a renaissance right now. This area is the more bohemian section of Alexandria, so if you like artisan shops, bistros, and quaint eateries, this is your spot. It's going through a bit of revitalization with new condos popping up in some areas but there are also longstanding residential homes that will be there forever as well. This is one of, if not the most family-friendly areas of Alexandria. The rental/home prices are a bit more reasonable than Old Town, which is a bonus as well so your money goes farther.
