July’s First Thursday Celebrates “Main Street” in Del Ray

Tonight’s First Thursday (July) was all about celebrating “Main Street” in Del Ray.  Visit Del Ray has adopted the theme “Where Main Street Still Exists” to promote Del Ray and we think it’s the perfect slogan for the neighborhood we call home.

Of course for us, “Main Street” is actually Mt. Vernon Avenue.  Local businesses – restaurants, ice cream shops, a UPS store, coffee shops, art galleries, clothing stores, a pharmacy, dry cleaner, post office, hardware store, hair salon, yoga studio, plant nursery, and more, lots more – are all contained within about a 10 block radius.

It’s the perfect neighborhood for walking and First Thursday is a great way to explore.

“Winchester” makes his first appearance at “First Thursday” with Anne and  Zac from Nelson Avenue.

The Avenue was full as couples, families, dog walkers, runners, bikers, etc., took advantage of cool temperatures and low humidity to get the holiday weekend off to just the right start.

I’d love to help you find a house in Del Ray – give me a call at 703.927.4554 and let’s see what’s available.
