Del Ray Virginia Information and Highlights

The area to the Northwest of Old Town, which had been in the separate town of Potomac, is popularly known as Del Ray, although that name properly belongs to one of many communities (including Hume, Mount Ida and Saint Elmo's) in that area.


The communities of Del Ray and St. Elmo's originated in early 1894 when developer Charles Wood organized them in a grid pattern of streets running north–south and east–west. Del Ray originally contained six east–west streets and five north–south. All were identical in width, except Mount Vernon Avenue, which was approximately 20 feet wider. St. Elmo's, a smaller tract, was laid out in a similar pattern, but with only four east–west streets and one running north–south.

By 1900, Del Ray contained approximately 130 people, and St. Elmo's 55. In 1908, the tracts of Del Ray, St. Elmo's, Mount Ida, and Hume were incorporated into the town of Potomac, which by 1910 had a population of 599; by 1920 it contained 1,000; by 1928 it had 2,355 residents; now more than 20,000 people live in Del Ray.


Del Ray is considered to be a local neighborhood of a much greater city – the City of Alexandria. If you head west from the strip of Jefferson Davis Highway that is littered with 21st-century strip malls and a big-box grocery store, you’ll find this little pocket town.


Alexandria, and by proxy, Del Ray, Virginia, gets 44 inches of rain per year. The U.S. average is 37. Snowfall is 7 inches. The average US city gets 25 inches of snow per year. The number of days with any measurable precipitation is 116.

On average, there are 201 sunny days per year in Alexandria, Virginia. The July high is around 89 degrees. The January low is 24. The comfort index, which is based on humidity during the hot months, is a 41 out of 100, where higher is more comfortable. The U.S. average on the comfort index is 44.


Being surrounded by Alexandria on all four sides, you don’t have to go far to bear witness to everything the larger city has to offer, but there are a few local destinations that you’ll only find in Del Ray.
