Nestled alongside the Potomac River, about eight miles south of Washington DC, Alexandria is a vibrant city rich with history and culture. Alexandria is best known for its picturesque Old Town, a nationally designated historic district founded in 1749. Along Old Town’s charming cobblestone streets and red-brick sidewalks, residents enjoy access to more than 200 independent boutiques and restaurants in addition to intimate historical museums and exciting events held at the waterfront.

Del Ray is another well-known neighborhood in Alexandria, offering a slew of eclectic shops, top-notch cafes, and diverse eateries with an artistic vibe along Mount Vernon Avenue. Residents delight in numerous scenic parks and preserves located throughout the city, from Waterfront Park to Dora Kelley Nature Park and everything in between.

Alexandria was famously the hometown of George Washington, and now contains the George Washington Masonic National Memorial. Commuting and traveling from Alexandria is easy with access to the Metro’s Blue and Yellow Lines, I-395, I-495, and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.
