Total Hunt Time
About 3 to 4 hours, depending on options selected
Just minutes by car or Metro from our America’s capital, Old Town Alexandria has all you could want in a treasure hunt location: colonial architecture, historic buildings dating back to George Washington and the American Revolution, and tree-lined cobblestone streets just ripe for exploration. Old Town is truly a delight around every corner. From Scotsman John Alexander’s purchase of the land in 1669 for 6000 lbs. of tobacco and cask, to Washington’s drilling of his militia troops, to England’s occupation during the War of 1812, Alexandria has always been the center of the action. During your Old Town Alexandria treasure hunt, expect to visit an English country church once attended by Robert E. Lee; an authentically-restored 18th century tavern/hotel; a pharmacy dating back to 1792; and a WWII torpedo factory converted into three stories of glittering art galleries. Old Town is the place for Washingtonians to escape the hustle and bustle of the Beltway and return to their colonial roots.
