I live in Alexandria, and it's much more boring than those places because there are hotels everywhere, but no attractions. And, given that, THOSE places are much more interesting than that of Alexandria.

AL is so... dystopian.

Go downtown and you will find some futureless drughead any 3 blocks you move.
