Just seven miles south of the nation's capital, the city of Alexandria, Virginia, offers an ideal place to relax, play, and sightsee. Tucked on the banks of the Potomac River, the city can feel worlds away from the hustle and bustle of Washington, D.C., even though it's minutes away. Step back in time to explore 18th- and 19th-century architecture, savor a vibrant arts culture, or spend time enjoying the vivid hues of nature.
Book Alexandria flights landing at Ronald Reagan Airport, just three miles north of the heart of the city. Once there, ditch commuter and tourist crowds by opting for a car rental in Alexandria. Fans of the PBS Series "Mercy Street," which follows two nurses anchored on opposite sides of the 1862 abolitionist conflict, can venture to sites depicted in the series where real-life stories of Confederate and Union sympathizers converged more than 150 years ago. Alexandria rental cars give you wings—or, rather, wheels—to explore places like James Green's Mansion House Hotel, where the series takes place, which was seized by the U.S. Army for use as a hospital. The adjacent Carlyle House was once home to the hospital's doctors and surgeons, and you can linger in rooms and corridors devoted to Civil War artifacts from the hospital. Enjoy scenic views of the Potomac along the city's waterfront hiking and biking trails that wind through Civil War sites and Mount Vernon, home of the nation's first president. When it's time to grab a bite or one-of-a-kind mementos of your Alexandria adventure, head for King Street in Old Town, which boasts 150 shops and 100 restaurants.
