« back to classes page
Founded in 1749 as a tobacco port, Alexandria is marked by cobblestone streets and 18th century townhouses. Walk the same streets that George Washington walked while enjoying this charming waterfront town. We’ll visit the dramatic George Washington Masonic National Memorial and take a docent-led tour that is sure to intrigue with unique displays about our first president, American history, and the Masonic heritage. Experience the Lee-Fendall House Museum & Garden through the lives of the people who lived and worked on the property from 1785-1969. We’ll also explore the Torpedo Factory Art Center, a former World War II era munitions factory turned art studio with more than 80 painters, sculptors, and jewelers. The tour allows for a generous lunch break so you can find the perfect place to eat and shop for treasures.
