What to do this Saturday that is not on the mall?

My boyfriend's mother and 23 year old sister are coming to town on Saturday from Pennsylvania. They have been here before and we have done the museums, Old Town and National Harbor. I'm hoping to stay away from the cherries this weekend as it will be too crowded around the mall for my taste.

Any ideas for things to do within about an hour from Alexandria? I'll be in Fredericksburg with the other side of the family this Sunday so I am not looking to go there two days in a row.

Thanks!
