Alexandria

— 8 nights
Just a few metro stops away from the bustle of Washington D.C., Alexandria provides a respite from the fast-paced capital.
Get some historical perspective at The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and George Washington's Mount Vernon. Appreciate the collections at Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center and National Museum of the Marine Corps. Venture out of the city with trips to Wild Hare Hard Cider (in Bluemont), KO Distilling (in Manassas) and Leesburg (Ida Lee Park & Audubon Naturalist Society Rust Nature Sanctuary). Spend the 12th (Sat) exploring nature at Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Old Town, stroll the grounds of Contrabands and Freedmen Cemetery, hike along Gulf Branch Nature Center, and steep yourself in history at Arlington National Cemetery.
