Welcome American Association of Directors of Nursing Services
AADNS Annual Conference | June 27-29, 2018

Minutes from National Harbor and MGM Grand, Old Town Alexandria delights travelers from all over the world. A nationally designated historic district founded in 1749 that George Washington called home, Old Town Alexandria hums with more than 200 independent restaurants and boutiques alongside intimate historic museums and new happenings at the waterfront. Old Town’s cobblestone streets and red brick sidewalks attracts everyone from presidents to pet lovers. At the heart of it all is bustling King Street, a walkable mile recognized as one of the “Great Streets” of America. Visitors can also enjoy the free King Street Trolley or take advantage of our Key to the City museum pass for discounted access to 8 historic sites.

Attendees of the AADNS Annual Conference won't want to miss exploring Alexandria's healthcare heritage by visiting the Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Museum. Opened in 1792 by young Quaker pharmacist Edward Stabler, the family business operated until 1933. Patrons included George & Martha Washington and Robert E. Lee. Over 15,000 objects still remain as part of the museum's collection - everything from herbs to bottles.

Just a ten minute taxi drive over the bridge or a 20 minute scenic ride on the Alexandria Water Taxi, Alexandria is easy and economical to visit.
