Just a few metro stops away from the bustle of Washington D.C., Alexandria provides a respite from the fast-paced capital. First settled in 1695 and one of the most historically rich towns in the D.C. metropolitan area, the city was George Washington's hometown. The brick-paved streets of Old Town showcase fine examples of early-American architecture complete with gas lamp-style streetlights. This area is also known for its trolley service, market, restaurants, art galleries, antique stores, and several significant landmarks. There are plenty of other neighborhoods worth adding to your itinerary, such as the bustling waterfront, arty Del Rey, and diverse Arlandria. With our world travel planner, United States vacations can be built around trips to Alexandria and other destinations in United States.
