Romantic Escape

Let's Get Carried Away

Cobblestone streets, a candlelit dinner in a cozy bistro and a stroll along the Potomac waterfront with a cup of hot chocolate are amongst the perfect activities for a romantic escape in Alexandria. Let the unforgettable setting carry you away on the sparkling electricity of new love or turn up the smoldering heat of an old flame. Listed amongst the "Top 20 Most Romantic Cities in the US" by Amazon.com and hailed as a "Best Place for a First Date" by Washingtonian magazine, the romance drifting along Alexandria's brick-lined streets preserves love from ages past, to inspire lovers of the present.
