5.0 / 5

Alexandria is a great little city just outside of the Nation's Capital on the Potomac River. Old Town offers historical colonial houses, wonderful shops and restaurants that cater to all culinary types. It is easy to navigate on foot, which lends itself to exploring. D.C. is a brief trip on the metro and Alexandria is easily accessible from both Reagan and Dulles airports. Whether you are looking to learn about the history through tours and museums or just relax, the options are abundant. Alexandria offers a slower pace than D.C. and a truly unique place with something for everyone.

When to Visit Alexandria, Virginia

Though Alexandria is a popular year-round destination, you might want to adjust your plans depending on the weather, your budget, and local events. Summers tend to get hot and humid in Alexandria, with temperatures typically reaching the upper 80s or low 90s. Winters can get cold, with high temperatures only reaching the 40s. Spring and fall offer a welcome balance, with sunny days and mild weather.

Due to the cold weather and slow event schedule, winter tends to be the least expensive time to visit Alexandria. Despite the hot and sticky weather, summer remains a popular time to visit, especially for families on summer vacation. With the well-known Cherry Blossom Festival and spring break, spring is simultaneously the most pleasant and most crowded time to visit. Plan your stay during the spring if you can handle the crowds, or visit during the fall for nice weather and more affordable room rates.
