We enjoy just sitting on the pier and watching the boats along the Potomac River. And then there is always the view of the capitol and the Washington monument!
honestly what can I say other than WOW!! that view across the Potomac at night is just OMG WOW!! That's not to say you don't get an amazing view during the day but watching the flights land at night is breathtaking
Had a great run along side the marina, then a few parks, historic homes, not crowded, very safe. Ran about 5 miles but super easy to walk or run between 1-5.

The water front in Alexandria is filled with things to do, day and night. A short boat ride to see the Washington Capitals baseball team and tickets are available for a low price.
