体验内容

No other town is as associated with George Washington as Alexandria, and Washington considered it his hometown. He surveyed Alexandria’s streets as a teenager in 1749, and his public memorial services were held there fifty years later after his death. On this two-hour walking tour, we'll visit churches, houses, taverns and other sites associated with the first president. We'll gather at historic Christ Church, where Washington worshipped, and we'll shatter a few myths handed down through history. Our walking tour covers about 1.5 miles and features George Washington's townhouse, a historic ice well, and an eighteenth century cannon from the French and Indian War. Bring your camera! Old Town oozes charm, and we'll explore cobblestone alleyways, the old embankment of the Potomac River, archaeological excavation sites, historic warehouses along the waterfront, and local homes of Washington's friends. This is a great starting point for visitors headed to nearby Mount Vernon, Washington's home.

Hi. I'm Garrett, a member of the Atlas Obscura community. I am an author, public historian, and tour guide in the nation's capital. While I was writing a guidebook of historic and recreational sites called "The Potomac River: A History and Guide," I was blown away with how important George Washington was to the development of this region, including selecting the site of the nation's capital. It was a lot of fun to research, like going on a treasure hunt. I can't wait to share these hidden gems of Old Town Alexandria with you!
