Where you’ll be

Alexandria, Virginia, United States

Old Town Alexandria is one of the most historic cities in America, home to both George Washington and Robert E Lee. We have several museums including the Athenaeum, the city's history museum, The Apothecary, Carlyle House, The Archeology Museum, Gadsby's Tavern and the Black History Museum. There are Ghost Tours and history tours. We also have wonderful Waterfront Parks, and the world renown Torpedo Factory Arts Center where you can see Artists in action. For a hip neighborhood diversion also try the shops and restaurants of Del Ray and Tanger outlets at National Harbor is just 10 min away!
And of course we are a short Metro or Capital Bikeshare ride away from Washington DC. There is a free Trolley up and down King St from the river to the metro station.
National airport is just a 12 min drive and downtown D.C. is 20 min (says google maps)
