Across the Potomac River from Washington D.C. lies the city of Alexandria in Northern Virginia. South of Alexandria is Mount Vernon, the location of Mount Vernon Estate. Mount Vernon Estate was once owned by the famous George Washington himself. Located along the Potomac riverbanks, Mount Vernon is connected to Old Town Alexandria via the George Washington Memorial Parkway and Route 1.
The George Washington Memorial Parkway offers a generous sprinkling of parks and wonderful scenery, including bike trails and lovely waterfront homes, which have differing and unique qualities about them.
On the other hand, Route 1 thrives with activity as a hub of industry and commerce in Alexandria. Although Route 1 might seem too busy, there are multiple condominium complexes from Route 1’s south end to its north end.
