Let's spend a nice fall day in Alexandria. We will start at the Masonic Temple monument on the North (west?) side of the King Street metro station (blue/yellow). A tour is available (first come, first serve) at 1:30 PM. Tickets: General Admission $5; Tour $8.
From there we will trek down King Street enjoying the historical sites, quaint shops and artistic finds (at one of the various art galleries, Torpedo Factory sites). After our walk, we will stop at one of the restaurants for an economical sip n' nosh and a bit of warmth before we make our way back to the Metro. :)
If you have any recommendations for places we should stop, please use the comments below to tell us about them. BTW, there is a shuttle available if we are feeling a little "lazy" and want to take a warmer, non-walking option down to Old Town from the metro. Street parking is free in Old Town on Sundays and some garages are a bit cheaper on that day. Plan accordingly. Here is a map of the area around the King Street Metro.
Looking forward to your input...
