Welcome to Extraordinary Alexandria

Welcome Canadians!

Along the northernmost tip of Virginia, within eyesight of Washington, DC lies the gorgeous cobblestoned paths and historic architecture of Alexandria, Virginia. Only an 8 hour drive from Ontario and 11 from Quebec, Alexandria is an extraordinary waterfront destination, ideal for a weekend getaway or a stop along a picturesque route to Virginia's and Florida's gorgeous beaches.

Dine in nationally-acclaimed restaurants frequented by American presidents, cruise the scenic Potomac River to the national mall or find stylish clothing at independent boutiques and American favorites like Chico's and the Gap. Located only a short distance from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport, and serviced by four Metrorail stations and the Free King Street Trolley, Alexandria presents a welcoming, walkable environment with activities to suit every cultural traveler desire.
