Alexandria City is on the Potomac River within eyesight of Washington, DC. Alexandria’s Old Town district was established in 1946 as only the third historic district designated in the United States.
Alexandria’s cobblestone streets and 18th and 19th century architecture offers historic charm to residents and tourist. Blending nationally known retailers with funky, one-of-a-kind boutiques, fantastic food, local breweries, parks and ease to the Nation’s Capital make Alexandria a desirable location to live.
Four Metrorail stations service Alexandria. Catch the Metro for a quick 17 minute ride from the King St-Old Town station to downtown DC or take a 15 minute scenic drive down George Washington Memorial Parkway from Old Town Alexandria to the National Mall, directed by the view of the Washington Monument.
