djaj saidold town alexandria is really nice I would live there in a heartbeat
Nah, too crowded and parking is a bitch. Too many tourists, too. The city is great, well zoned and laid out. Just across the river from all the amenities of DC ... Many of which are free ... Museums etc.
One of the aspects of Alexandria that I am very proud is its insistence on providing amenities to residents of all incomes. Such as, there are free city gyms located around the city, so everybody has access to a gym and can workout.
