Hi-husband & I will be passing through Alexandria on our way home from taking daughter to college in NY one week from Saturday. We're staying Friday night at the Holiday Inn Express Fort Belvoir on Richmond Hwy(husband's choice) and will have until early afternoon on Saturday to see some of the highlights of Alexandria before leaving for our next stop along the road. We know that this hotel has a free local area shuttle which includes Old Town but could use some help with what direction we should head in from the hotel for things to do. Could we walk from this hotel to other sights or should we plan on using the shuttle or our car? Would Strolling Old Town take several hours or should we plan other things to do as well? We enjoy pretty much anything from shopping to history and everything in between! We would really appreciate any ideas or some type of rough itinerary that we could follow for the several hours that we have to spend. Thanks in advance-can't wait to experience Alexandria!
