Minutes from Washington D. C. yet a world away! On the waterfront within eyesight of Washington, D.C. and National Harbor, experience an alluring mix of historic authenticity and urban sophistication. Frequented by presidents from George Washington to Barack Obama, Alexandria is nationally recognized for its rich history and beautifully preserved 18th- and 19th-century architecture--an extraordinary backdrop for acclaimed, chef-driven restaurants; a thriving boutique scene; vibrant arts and culture; and a contemporary, walk able lifestyle.
