Submit Your Extraordinary & Be Part of the Campaign

"Extraordinary Alexandria" represents a major departure for Visit Alexandria which previously relied more heavily on history themes and print advertising. A contemporary approach is reflected in the new branding as well as a new emphasis on digital advertising and social media. More than a tourism campaign, "Extraordinary Alexandria" is a lifestyle brand, expanding upon the city's historic setting to seamlessly integrate the thriving community of independent restaurants, boutiques and arts and cultural venues.

When City of Alexandria Mayor William D. Euille kicked off the Brand Launch event on September 18, 2014 he noted that, "Extraordinary Alexandria reflects the vast changes occurring in our city over the past five years - new hotels, restaurants and shops; new developments in the city's neighborhoods and on the waterfront."
