Named a Top 3 Best Small City in the U.S. 2021 by the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards, Alexandria is nationally recognized for its rich history and beautifully preserved 18th- and 19th-century architecture—a perfect backdrop for hundreds of independent restaurants and boutiques, a vibrant arts and culture scene, and a welcoming, walkable getaway.
