- Why Alexandria
- Things to Do
With Alexandria's rich history and culture, meetings and events become legendary. Authentic historic and cultural venues complement the more contemporary galleries and trendy sites, while conveniently located and available for private rentals. Mingle at Gadsby's Tavern Museum where George Washington celebrated his birthday and Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and other prominent patrons danced, dined and enjoyed the hospitality of the City' first innkeeper. Captivate your attendees with a tented picnic or a candlelit tour at George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate or cruise down the Potomac dining and dancing to music of your era on an authentic paddleboat, The Cherry Blossom, or the Parisian style Nina's Dandy.
History buffs, art lovers and shoppers will love a private reception at the Torpedo Factory Art Center, a former 1900s torpedo factory and current day working studio for local artists, while beer aficionados can tour and sample award-winning craft beer at Port City Brewery.
