Alexandria is an active community that offers visitors a chance to escape to the great outdoors without leaving town. AAA named Alexandria one of the “Ten Most Walkable Cities” in the country, but if a walk isn’t enough exercise, hiking and biking trails wind along the waterfront with breathtaking views of the Potomac River, guiding you through George Washington’s Mount Vernon and Civil War sites. Prefer a plunge? Alexandria can take you there: Cameron Run Regional Park’s waterslides and wave pool bring a family-friendly oasis to Virginia.
