Plan your next cycling adventure in arresting Alexandria, Virginia, a city at the center of American political and cultural history. Founded in 1749 and boasting the nation’s third oldest historic district, Alexandria exudes a classy, cosmopolitan vibe best discovered by bike.
This city was home to the first US President, George Washington, whose Mount Vernon estate offers admirable views over Old Town, and which later stole the heart of President Gerald R. Ford. Its proximity to Washington DC makes it a popular commuter city for professionals who work in the nation's capital, but Alexandria also holds its own as a spectacular sightseeing destination in its own right. Its famous Old Town is a fiesta of boutiques, theaters, antique shops and top-quality restaurants - a day spent in Alexandria is an extra-special experience!
Compact and classic, Alexandria lends itself brilliantly to bike tours - on two wheels, Mount Vernon and Old Town can be explored in the same day! Cycle the King Street Mile, pedal along the Potomac, and take a diversion down Duke Street, with bike rental provided as an added benefit. Explore historic museums, sample superb shopping and dining spots, and admire an array of architectural styles, from Georgian to Mid-Century Modern. Splendid!
