Just a few metro stops away from the bustle of Washington D.C., Alexandria provides a respite from the fast-paced capital.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Alexandria: National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle), Luray Caverns (in Luray) and Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (in Chantilly). There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Old Town, take in the waterfront at Old Town Waterfront, explore the world behind art at Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and contemplate the long history of George Washington's Mount Vernon.

To see photos, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Alexandria journey planning tool .

In October, daytime highs in Alexandria are 71°F, while nighttime lows are 54°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
