Welcome to Alexandria

 
Alexandria is an independent city in the northern region of the Commonwealth of Virginia in the United States. It lies on the western bank of the Potomac River approximately 7 miles (11 km) south of downtown Washington, D.C. As of 2020, the population was 159,467. The city's estimated population has grown by 1% percent annually since 2010 on average. Like the rest of Northern Virginia, modern Alexandria has been influenced by its proximity to the U.S. capital. It is largely populated by professionals working in the federal civil service, in the U.S. military, or for one of the many private companies which contract to provide services to the federal government. One of Alexandria's largest employers is the U.S. Department of Defense.
 
Another is the Institute for Defense Analyses. In 2005, the United States Patent and Trademark Office moved to Alexandria, and in 2017, so did the headquarters of the National Science Foundation. The historic center of Alexandria is known as Old Town. With its concentration on boutiques, restaurants, antique shops, and theaters, it is a major draw for all who live in Alexandria as well as for visitors. Like Old Town, many Alexandria neighborhoods are compact and walkable. It is the 7th largest and highest-income independent city in Virginia.
