Big town feel, small town comfort.
"Old Town" Alexandria, with its blocks and blocks of sensational shops, boutiques, restaurants and art galleries is entirely do-able on foot.
Swap out four wheels for two, explore by boat or set off on foot – with the free King Street Trolley and access to four Metrorail stations, Alexandria offers a walkable, welcoming lifestyle, easy to get to, and easy to get around.
Take a leisurely stroll down King Street to the Potomac waterfront and pause into locally-owned boutiques, just steps from popular historic sites, luxurious accommodations and award-winning restaurants.
Embark on a guided walking tour of George Washington’s footsteps, at Mount Vernon, stopping at Gadsby’s Tavern Museum and the Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Museum, or learn of Alexandria’s haunted history with a lantern-lead Ghost & Graveyard Tour.
