    Cuter than Shirlington but not quite as aggressively quaint as Old Town, Del Ray is one of those rare Northern Virginia neighborhoods that doesn't feel too cookie-cutter. A historic hidden gem of a 'hood, Del Ray is full of gorgeous old houses, great indie shops, and delicious eats. Plus, the denizens of this friendly community are passionate about maintaining the laid-back Main Street vibe that makes it so special.

    So, whether you're looking to explore a new-to-you slice of the DMV or you're a longtime fan of its unique charm, you'll want to take a stroll down Mount Vernon Avenue with our cheat sheet in hand.
