Alexandria (USA)

It is also known as the 'city that is minutes away from Washington D.C., yet a world away'. Contrary to Washington D.C., Alexandria is heavily influenced by European architecture. It is a great walking city as it features cobblestone and brick-lined streetscape, stunning architectural details, and classic-style pubs and bars.

Voice of Travelers to Alexandria (USA)

A blast at a spontaneous trip to Alexandria

Hi, I'm Jennifer from London. I booked a ticket to Alexandria for a conference and had free time, and I decided to roam around Alexandria. I've heard stories about Alexandria looking like a lot like old Europe but I never really thought about how reminiscent Alexandria would be to old Europe. Until I saw Alexandria for myself. The cobblestone streets and colorful rowhouses really took me to a trip back in time when Europe had cobblestones and brick streets, and vibrant rowhouses with intricate details. I wish I could explore more of Alexandria. From what I have experienced, the ticket to Alexandria, US is reasonably priced, so I really have to get me an airline ticket back to Alexandria again soon.

Best raffle price ever: Ticket to Alexandria, US

Alba here from Alexandria, Egypt. I always wondered about the other Alexandria in the world. And when I won a ticket to any US State at a raffle, I immediately chose a ticket to Alexandria. My ticket to Alexandria was with Delta and Turkish Airlines, with 2 stops, and took me about 17 hours. But, it was worth it. When I got to Alexandria, the place was a complete opposite of my place. Alexandria, USA has lovely and colorful architecture. I loved the rowhouses and classic pubs the most. Definitely a must go to place in the US, and the ticket to Alexandria when I checked is not too expensive too. So, I'll surely buy myself a ticket to go back to Alexandria soon.

Best food trip in my life

My friends and I are roaming around the US, we booked ticket to different states. Alexandria was one of the US states we booked a ticket to. I gotta say, Alexandria is one of my favorite places here in the US. It's very different from a lot of cities I've seen. Our photos in Alexandria looked like we're on a European trip. LOL. The Italian food, Irish pubs, and French restaurants we splurged in were the best, especially the Bastille and the Fontaine. I really believe my friends and I would book another ticket to Alexandria. I know I would book myself a ticket.
