Founded in 1749, Alexandria has seen its fair share of history: a big tobacco trading post; the largest slave-trading firm in the country was based here (yet was home to a large number of free blacks); an occupied city in the South during the Civil War; and now a hip suburb of Washington, D.C. Alexandria was home to George Washington, Robert E. Lee, Jim Morrison, Mama Cass and even President Gerald Ford. Located just 9 miles from D.C., Alexandria is a great place to play, shop and eat.
