Just a few metro stops away from the bustle of Washington D.C., Alexandria provides a respite from the fast-paced capital.
Start off your visit on the 8th (Mon): ponder the world of politics at The Pentagon, appreciate the extensive heritage of Tomb of the Unknowns, and then stroll the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery. Keep things going the next day: browse the exhibits of George Washington's Mount Vernon, then examine the collection at National Museum of the Marine Corps, and then see the interesting displays at Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center.
