Alexandria

Getting Here and Around

Take either the George Washington Memorial Parkway or Jefferson Davis Highway (Route 1) south from Arlington to reach Alexandria. Stop at the Alexandria Visitors Center at Ramsay House (221 King Street) to get oriented.

The King Street/Old Town Metro stop (about 25 minutes from Metro Center) is right next to the Masonic Memorial and a 10-block walk on King Street from the center of Old Town. There's a free King Street Trolley between the King Street station and the Torpedo Factory Art Center daily from 11:30 am to 10 pm.
