Alexandria

— 8 nights
Just a few metro stops away from the bustle of Washington D.C., Alexandria provides a respite from the fast-paced capital.
Get some historical perspective at The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Old Town. Appreciate the collections at Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center and George Washington's Mount Vernon. Venture out of the city with trips to KO Distilling (in Manassas), Leesburg (Ida Lee Park & Audubon Naturalist Society Rust Nature Sanctuary) and Wild Hare Hard Cider (in Bluemont). Spend the 15th (Tue) exploring nature at Great Falls Park. Spend the 12th (Sat) exploring nature at Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts. There's much more to do: stroll the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery, identify plant and animal life at Hidden Pond Nature Center, tour the pleasant surroundings at Mount Vernon Trail, and admire the striking features of Athenaeum.
