Just a few metro stops away from the bustle of Washington D.C., Alexandria provides a respite from the fast-paced capital.
Change things up with these side-trips from Alexandria: Escape Room Herndon (in Herndon), Ellanor C. Lawrence Park (in Centreville) and Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (in Chantilly). Spend the 12th (Sat) exploring nature at Great Falls Park. And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Old Town, get to know the fascinating history of The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, appreciate the history behind U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Alexandria's Christ Church.

To find ratings, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Alexandria trip itinerary app.
