  • Weather was good... this is a nice historic place to be... a lot of people come with their dogs... nice place to take some photos. Good for kids. You can get taxis (water taxis) and go to other locations.
  • Founder's Park is a great place to visit on the waterfront near Old Town Alexandria. There is plenty of space for family picnics and a number of restaurants ($$$$) nearby as well if you want to make a day of it.
