I love King Street. I worked in Old Town for a short time and absolutely loved walking down King Street at lunchtime and stopping at the shops and cafes.

If money were no object, I would love to live in Old Town. But it just doesn't make any sense for us.

I did a lot on King St in Alexandria. Of course, my HS was on King St. Walked it a lot in Old Town and enjoyed it when I was not doing a job interview.

Might as well include U Street in D.C. I know its not Northern VA, but its close enough that it deserves a mention. Surely its a lot closer to most of NoVA than Culpepper. Congrats to all 3 of them!

I live in Old Town, have for a very long time and have always enjoyed King Street. Won't be much longer though. Finally moving out west of D.C.

I realize it's a bit outside the beltway but it's spelled Culpeper after Thomas, Lord Fairfax.

That's what happens when you type 75WPM and don't bother to proofread. Oh well. Btw... I DO know WHO its named after.

Looking at the APA's website Great Places in America: Streets , it looks like the study was focusing on the blocks between the Metro station and the River. Not that the rest of Route 7 leading up to Leesburg Pike doesn't have its pleasant spots, but I would have been surprised if the study included the entire stretch.
