Alexandria is a great place to explore. It's ful lof historical houses and sights as well as some good restaurants, bars and shopping.

Alexandria is always a stop for us when we are visiting the DC area. We enjoy walking along King Street and grabbing a drink, meal or do some shopping.

One of our favorte historical sights is in Alexandria; Mount Vernon. We enjoy walking the grounds of Mount Vernon and touring the house of our First President. The views from Mount Vernon are spectacular and it is a perfect way to spend the afternoon. Our last visit to Mount Vernon was Memorial Day Weekend 2015. We purchased tickets for a special sunset tour of Mount Vernon. It was a beautiful, warm night and we had a wondeful time enjoying some champagne and dessert as the sun set.

Alexandria is the perfect place to explore on foot. So many sights are within walking distance and the others are accessible by public transport. So if the weather isn't frigid; we like to wander around the town on foot and explore some new and old sights of Alexandria.

    And meter parking (which is everywhere) has gone up to $1.75 an hr. & parking enforcers are diligent!
