A Traveler's Guide to Alexandria

Alexandria is a city that is located in the upper northeastern portion of the state of Virginia. It is located on the western bank of the Potomac River and is 5 miles south of Washington DC. The city is mostly full of people who work in DC or for the government. It is the seventh largest city in the state, but the wealthiest city as far as per capita income is concerned.

The city is named after Philip Alexander II, whose estate made up much of the early settlement of the city. The city was at one time designated to be a part of Washington DC itself, but later it returned to the state of Virginia. Alexandria was occupied by Union forces during the US Civil War and was the site of some of the war's earliest violence. After the war, the city annexed the Town of Potomac. Since then it has continued to grow as a suburb of the nation's capital.
