"worth a day trip from DC" Alexandria by dircelo
Alexandria Travel Guide: 463 reviews and 1,534 photos
For years I was told it is so easy and worth going to Alexandria, and the day I went by Metro I was honestly not too much impressed. Even though it was a nice day and I do like to watch antique stores, I somehow expected more...more atmosphere perhaps. It was a weekday and it was very quiet, the only considerable noise was coming from the aircrafts taking off from National Airport, which I found rather disturbing...
On the other side of the Marinara a huge bridge was built so I imagine Alexandria's waterfront may have lost some of its Charme.
While strolling through the town I very much was reminded of the movie "American Beautie", somehow, I can not really tell why, but I imagine people like those displayed in that movie must be living in Alexandria too, no offense to anybody.
I noticed plenty of pride, which is displayed by lots of Stars and Stripes at nearly every house. Probably many officials of the not so far Pentagon residing here, or?
Anyway go and watch Kevin Spacey, Anett Benning etc in that movie, its brilliant acting and a realistic story, won an Oscar?
