Driving tips in Alexandria

Alexandria is about six miles south of downtown Washington, D.C., and like most of Northern Virginia, it's a city filled by federal employees, members of the U.S. armed forces and their families, and private contractors who work with the federal government. In fact, the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office are two of this city's biggest employers. If you're in Alexandria for business, perhaps you need your car rental to get back and forth between the hotel and your appointments. But it's also a great way to spend some free time visiting Alexandria's great restaurants, and seeing the awesome national monuments that dot the landscape of our nation's capital – just a short drive in your car rental to any of them!

When in Alexandria, you're definitely advised to take your car rental and drive over to Old Town, which is the city's historic center. It's full of theaters, small shops (especially antique stores and boutiques), and restaurants. As a major tourism attraction, Old Town is a great district where you can park the car rental and walk around for an hour or two! You can check out the 18th century architecture, cool landmarks like Gadsby's Tavern and the Lee-Fendall House, visit the farmer's market (held Saturday mornings on Market Square), watch a street performer, or even take a cruise on the Potomac on a river boat!

5 Things You Must Do in Alexandria

Be sure to take a photo of the famous Civil War statue “Appomattox” by M. Casper Buberl, before getting back to your affordable car rental and back to your hotel or business meetings! George Washington helped lay out the streets of Alexandria , Virginia in 1749. It is right on the Potomac river opposite Washington D.C. Many colonial buildings still survive in the old town. It is described on its web site as 'The fun side of the Potomac'.

1. Alexandria Black History Museum- At one time Alexandria had a segregated black library on Wythe Street. Now it is the Alexandria Black History Museum. 'Securing the blessing of liberty is an exhibit to be seen.

2. The Atheneum in Prince Street is where Robert E. Lee did his banking. It's an art gallery these days. It is being fully renovated in 2007 so have a good look round this autumn and find their program of events on the web site at http://www.nvfaa.org/calendarofevents.html

3. Christ Church on N.Washington St is where Washington and Lee worshipped. As well of course as normal services there are tours 9am to 4pm from Monday to Saturday.

4. The Torpedo Factory Art Center now has 82 working artists studios as well as galleries. So instead of just seeing art  on walls you can see it being created, and of course, buy the works that you want.

5. Dinner and a Tournament- For a truly unique experience visit Medieval Times, Arundel Mills Circle, Hanover for dinner and a tournament. There can't be many of those going on in North America.
