D.C. Trip: Saturday

Lisa and I took a day trip south to Alexandria, Va., on Valentine’s Day. Old Town Alexandria is a beautiful place with a lot of character. Restaurants and specialty shops line the main street, just every once and a while giving way to a chain like Banana Republic or Ann Taylor. For the most part, the town has done a great job preserving its colonial roots — George Washington went to church there and ran part of the Revolutionary War out of a tavern there, for example — while still being modernized. Gotta be crowded as hell during the tourist season, though.

It was a great afternoon destination. It is so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend it. (Will anyone get that movie reference?)
