The city of Alexandria in Virginia lies on the Potomac River. The city has a beautiful old town, which has well-preserved buildings dating back to the 18th century, and it’s best known for its historical significance and links to the Founding Fathers.
Top things to do include exploring Gadsby’s Tavern, which is where the founding fathers once dined and has now been converted into a museum with period objects and photographs, visiting the nearby Mount Vernon, which is the former plantation house of George Washington, and strolling around Carlyle House Historic Park, which is a Georgian mansion with a tranquil garden. Meanwhile, if you like shopping, head to King Street, which is lined with boutiques and craft shops.
The best time to visit Alexandria is in the summer months of June, July and August when the weather is warm and sunny.
