Recognised for its rich history and beautifully preserved 18th and 19th century architecture, Alexandria is a picturesque escape from America’s capital.

View Holidays

Founded in 1749 and boasting the USA’s third oldest historic district, Alexandria hums with history while simultaneously offering a cosy yet cosmopolitan feel. Situated on the Potomac River within a stone’s throw from Washington DC, this walkable city revolves around its famous Old Town, filled with more than 200 independent restaurants, boutiques, historic museums and red-brick sidewalks. Renowned for its incredible 18th and 19th century architecture and welcoming vibe, Alexandria is the perfect homebase for any holiday in America’s Capital Region.

When visiting, make sure you find yourself on King Street, which is perpetually packed with delightful restaurants and specialty shops. Then stroll along the waterfront to see the boats bobbing along the water before touring the Torpedo Factory Art Centre with its intriguing collective of galleries and artists’ studios. Before you leave, don’t forget to have a drink at Gadsby’s Tavern – where some of the nation’s founding fathers used to go for a pint. Brush aside the actors in garb and have yourself a wonderful time.
