Getting Here and Around in Alexandria

Getting Here and Around

Alexandria is only a few miles from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. It's easy to get there by Metrorail, taxi, water taxi, or Metrobus. Visit the Old Town sights on foot if you're prepared to walk 20 blocks or so; parking is usually scarce, especially close to the river, and the parking police seem to catch every violation (especially in alleys). The visitor center at Ramsay House will give you a 24-hour permit for free parking at any two-hour metered spot.
