“Alexandria is charming and great to walk around”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

I googled a walking tour of Alexandria and this was on it. Cool to see it and I usually don't think of Lee frequenting the same spots as Washington, Jefferson and Adams. There is a family home across the street that you can go in and has some family papers. It was closed early but we got to enjoy the gardens in the back.
If you stop at the visitors center you can get a pass for free parking for the day. Nice!
