Transportation from D.C. to Alexandria--Recommend water taxi or train?

Jump to last reply

Hi All,

Has anyone ever taken the water taxi to Alexandria from DC? How about the train?
(I'll be staying near Georgetown and am only using public transportation)

I would love to get feedback on how you liked/disliked your choice. How long did the transportation take? Is the water taxi worth it or a waste of time? How's the tour narration? Is the train back to D.C. at all scary at night? Is there a time period to be definately cautious? Some trains in cities are always safe and populated, but since some city trains aren't, I thought I'd check with you experts.

My idea was to leave in the morning from Georgetown for a nice day trip to Alexandria. Ideally I was thinking to take the train one way and the boat the other way. I was thinking though, that it would be nice to stay late and have dinner there but I wasn't sure how practical or safe that would be.

I would appreciate all your feedback on this. Thanks for your help!


(I put some of this question out on a more generalized 'Alexandria' forum but I thought I might get more specific for this question.)
