Alexandria is steeped in both history and culture offering a wide variety of things to do from visiting George Washington's home to dining on the lovely Potomac River. Alexandria offers a wide variety of activities on a daily basis including dining in Colonial taverns, shopping in the specialty shops of Old Town, walking tours of the City's historic sites and homes or a boat ride along the waterfront. It's all here in Alexandria. We suggest visiting the Ramsay House when you arrive. It is centrally located at the corner of King and Fairfax Streets in the heart of Old Town and is filled with a large selection of brochures and lists of walking tours and special events to choose from during your visit.
