One of the many benefits of Bellevue’s locale is its remarkably fortuitous proximity to amenities like Oldtown in Alexandria, National Harbor in Maryland, and starting on November 22nd, the Tanger Outlets at National Harbor. And with Bellevue being less than 10 minutes away, holiday shopping (or just re-upping my undershirt supply) is about to get a whole lot easier!

“For the first time, people are going to come to Prince George’s County to shop”

. . . and until any place close to Bellevue gets anything remotely comparable (start holding breath . . . NOW), I’ll be one of those people!
