King Street Streetscape

Extend Your Stay

Coming to Alexandria for business? Come early or stay late to discover Old Town Alexandria and Washington, D.C. Savvy conference attendees are increasingly extending their travel dates to explore sought-after destinations without making an extra trip. Located minutes from Washington, D.C. and named the #1 Best Value U.S. Travel Destination 2018 by Money magazine and one of the South’s Prettiest Cities 2018 by Southern Living, you’ll want to extend your stay in Old Town Alexandria, a welcoming escape on the Potomac River and an easy home base for D.C.-area attractions. Stroll historic King Street, a mile of boutiques, restaurants, museums and galleries recognized as one of the “Great Streets” of America and head down to the waterfront to hop on a water taxi to D.C. Venture to nearby attractions such as George Washington’s Mount Vernon, MGM National Harbor or D.C.’s wine country and make the most of your well-earned “me” time.
