Description - Published on Feb/09/2009
Alexandria is an independent city in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Located along the Western bank of the Potomac River, Alexandria is approx 6 miles south of downtown Washington DC.

Old Town Alexandria is a quaint historic town just on the other side of the Potomac River from Washington, DC.

Dating back to 1749, Alexandrias riverfront was an important colonial port during the colonial, revolutionary and Civil War periods.

Today Old Town Alexandria is a revitalized waterfront with cobblestone streets, colonial houses and churches, museums, shops and restaurants.

The Georgetown Waterfront Park will offer a magnificent green space for visitor recreation and contemplation. Cyclists, skaters, and pedestrians will have their own, car-free pathways, and safe, well-lighted river access will be available to all, from individual boaters and kayakers to competitive crews.

The park will curve along 10 acres of the Potomac extending from the Washington Harbour complex to Key Bridge, creating the vital last link in 225 miles of parkland from Mt. Vernon, Virginia, to Cumberland, Maryland.


Woodrow Wilson Memorial Bridge is a bascule bridge(Interstate 95 and Interstate 495) that spans the Potomac River between Alexandria, VA and National Harbor(Oxon Hill), MD

Waterfront is a cheerful place to walk and enjoy the scenic views of the National Harbor and Washington D.C.

It is also a popular location for enjoying live music and street performers.

Many restaurants offer delicious meals along the water, or you can grab a quick bite to eat and relax on a bench as sailboats glide by on the beautiful Potomac River



National Harbor is a 300-acre new urbanist mixed use waterfront development being built by the Peterson Companies on the shores of the Potomac River, Maryland.

In addition to the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, which opened on April 1, 2008, National Harbor will contain five new hotels, waterfront condos, offices, retail stores, nightspots, a marina, and a new location for the National Childrens Museum.

Gaylord National Resort and Convention center is the cornerstone of National Harbor itself. This full-service luxury hotel is designed to offer guests a complete range of business, convention and recreational amenities all under one roof. Characterized by its immense 18-story artium, it is the largest non-gaming hotel and convention center on the Eastern Seaboard.

National harbor will feature the Summer Concert Series among other outdoor activities

This spectacular urban-waterfront community offers stunning views of downtown Washington, D.C. and Old Town Alexandria, and is just a 15-minute drive - or water taxi ride - to the heart of the nations capital.

National Harbor is directly accessible from the Capital Beltway, I-95, I-495, I-295, and the new Woodrow Wilson Bridge, and is minutes away from all three area airports.

Seadog is the most thrilling attraction. It is a speedboat(cruise) for sightseeing.

  1. musicp8r - Alexandria = SMART development National harbor = HORRIFIC development The NH is an eyesore!!
  2. Gus Mason - national harbor's ONLY problem is the fact that it's so secluded. it's going yo be very successful, but there has to be a better means of getting there. this harbor, along with baltimore's inner harbor, means that there will be not one, but TWO major harbor destinations in our state. way to go, maryland!!!
  3. OurTrip Videos - Thanks for your comments and time.
