Travel Tips for Alexandria

Old versus new

by b1bob

My favourite thing about Alexandria's old town is the contrast between old and new. In some of the colonial buildings that have the half-storey (used as a loophole to get around paying higher tax during colonial times), there are multi-national chains such as McDonald's, Dunkin' Donuts, etc. I snapped a tanning salon in one of these older buildings on King Street.

Historical Buildings Still Standing

by lmkluque

See the18th century brick buildings which are predominate in Alexandria.

It is hard to describe the feeling of driving through Old Town Alexandria, especially to a person coming from another country, one who didn't grow up learning about the creation of the USA.

However, anyone who loves history can appreciate the period captured in this area of town. Though the USA is less than three hundred years old--quite young compared to some cultures--its history is being preserved throughout the country and Alexandria is an especially rich repository.

Old Town Coffee, Tea, & Spice

by alexandria_native

One of my favorite places in Old Town, only 2 blocks from King Street and near the waterfront. As the name says, the shop has mostly bulk coffees, teas, and spices. They also have a wide assortment of cookies, candies, cheeses, and other goodies from around the world, every kind of tea pot and coffe pot imaginable, and a broad range of ever-changing eclectic gifts.

Gadsby's Tavern Museum

by Yaqui

In 1749, Charles Mason erected a house measuring a minimum of 20 feet by 20 feet within two years. By the mid-1750s, Charles Mason and his wife Anne were operating a tailoring business and an ordinary for their business and home. Soon after Anne's death in 1761 the building began its long journey of being several types of establishments: as tavern, hotel, ballroom, barracks, auction house, club house and museum. Many American presidents and foreign dignitaries have been lodged and entertained within their walls as have tourists, merchants, actors, circus performers, Federal troop housing, and the pomp and splendor of George Washington’s birthday celebrations.

Now is stands a tribute to our past to educate and enjoy.

The George Washington Mural - north of Old Town

by Ewingjr98

The George Washington Mural is tucked in where few tourists will ever see it, but where locals enjoy it daily. Where is this wonderful mural that stretches 1,200 feet (yes, almost a quarter mile), stands 10 feet tall, and depicts 13 of the most significant scenes from the life of our first President? It is along the Mount Vernon Trail, in one of the most rarely traveled sections behind the Alexandria power plant.

The mural starts with Washington's boyhood home at Ferry Farm in Fredericksburg (but not his birth home...?), then continues to show scenes of his life as a surveyor, British soldier, Revolutionary General, and his life as the President. The figures in the foreground of the painting are full sized, amazing for a mural of this length. At the northern-most section of the mural are paintings of various objects related to Washington such as the $1 bill, the quarter, and stamps for example.

The mural was just completed in May 2009 after years of work. Before the mural was finished, this was a plain old chain link fence barely hiding the coal yard for the power plant.
