According to Marriot these hotels are near downtown DC and Old Town Alexandria. Thought that was nice:)

I want to know some fun things we can do. I was going to choose the harbor but I don't think there is much there we would want to do. If you know some fun things there please tell also.

Also do you think we should go to Alexandria or the National Harbor?

Anyway, what are some fun things we can do?

Thanks :)

A combination of Early American heritage and modern flair, Alexandria boasts an eclectic choice of activities - whether you wish to walk in the footsteps of history, spend a refreshing day outdoors, or have a girlfriends' spa day getaway!

 

Visit several sites highlighting the city's role in the American Revolution and the Civil War. Enjoy quiet reflection in Christ Church, where George Washington and Robert E. Lee worshipped.

One day I said, 'I will go out & look for my enemies' and on that day I found no friends. The next day I said, 'I will go out & look for my friends' & on that day I found no enemies. ~YeddaHeads~

I think youngsters of your age would be more interested in having fun than learning too much history about a destination. Here are a few things that you should not miss out:

1. Cruises on the Potomac River, horse drawn carriage rides, ghost tours, and historic walking tours.

2. Bike the scenic Mount Vernon Trail

3. Attend a concert atBirchmere Music Hall. It is errific concert venue with 500 seats offering a good view from every seat in the house.

4. The City of Alexandria has numerous parks and recreational facilities providing opportunities to enjoy hiking, picnicking, swimming, bicycling or boating.

5. Attend a Festival or Special Event. Alexandria hosts a lot of wonderful events throughout the year including parades, art and music festivals, holiday events and much more.
