    Carlyle house is the scene of early Colonial America. It's a great beginning to start your historical tour.  more »

    Tour was a quick walk through on the same day of the St. Patricks Day Parade. Lovely home, but not as engaging as I would have liked. The Mercy Street exhibit was interesting.  more »

    A house built by one of the founders of Alexandria back in the 18th century! The docent was excellent and knew her stuff. An excellent view into the beginnings of America almost like we were there.  more »

Where to stay in Alexandria

Old Town boasts a number of high-end hotels that provide easy walking access to some of Alexandria's most popular restaurants, bars, and attractions. However, these are not typically budget-friendly; those looking to save a few dollars should consider a hotel or motel located on Jefferson Davis Highway. Though not technically within the city boundaries, these accommodations are considerably cheaper and often within walking distance of the metro. Alexandria is also home to a number of charming bed and breakfasts, several of which are located inside historical buildings.
