Founded in 1749, Alexandria is a living, breathing showcase of American history. From the 18th-century architecture to the classic cobblestone streets, this city will make you feel like you've stepped back in time. The Old Town district of Alexandria includes more than 4,000 historic buildings. Museums, historic sites and art galleries are found throughout the city. At Gadsby's Tavern Museum for example, you can see where Thomas Jefferson once entertained. Just up the river you can explore George Washington's home at the Mount Vernon Estate and Gardens.
Alexandria is nicknamed the "Fun Side of the Potomac" for a reason. There is plenty to do here even if you're interested in more than history. Enjoy shopping the boutiques of Market Square or indulge in a gourmet meal at one of the area's many fine restaurants.
Just a few miles away from Alexandria you can enjoy all the spectacle and political fever of Washington, D.C. From the Washington Monument to the Lincoln Memorial, Washington, D.C., is filled with interesting attractions. An exploratory trip through the Capitol is always nice, but for a somber yet important experience, visit the Vietnam Veterans Memorial or the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. No matter what you're into, there's plenty to do in Washington, D.C.
