Visit Alexandria is the City of Alexandria’s nonprofit tourism marketing agency, promoting Alexandria as a premier destination for tourism and meetings. Named the Top 3 Best Small City in the U.S. by the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards, Alexandria's reputation continues to rise nationally and internationally. Visit Alexandria’s umbrella marketing works to increase awareness, visitation and tourism revenues in an increasingly competitive market. As a member of Visit Alexandria, you join with hundreds of other industry partners to form a strong, unified presentation of Alexandria nationally and regionally. Our collective marketing presence is more meaningful and more visible than what any of us can do individually.
