Alexandria is so close to D.C. that it actually used to be a part of the federal district, yet it manages to feel as it belongs to another world… another era. Home to one of the oldest historic districts in America, Alexandria boasts a heavy dose of colonial charm.
From its founding in 1749, you'll learn about this pre- Revolutionary home where George Washington worshipped and occasionally stayed, Robert E. Lee grew up, and other stories of this historic town.
End the tour at the Waterfront for some great seafood lunch or ice cream and a bit of boardwalk charm.
