Alexandria is a wonderful place to live and is one of the best places to find a charming, suburban community so close to downtown washington DC. It is an expensive place to live but it has a strong community, many activities for families, and plenty of amenities.

The Del Ray neighborhood is a wonderful and quaint place to visit a farmer's market or get a delicious bite to eat. Old Town is vibrant and filled with excellent food and shopping options.

No crime. At all. Just silly middle school and high school kids pulling pranks. Beautiful, charming city. 7 minutes to DC. Great schools. Great community. Educated people. Diverse.

Old Town is fun and beautiful, especially by the water (the Potomac). Good restaurants. Arlington is right next door, and it's a pretty awesome city, too.
