Under $100 / North America

Alexandria, Virginia, is full of cultural attractions, historic landmarks and outdoor activities. With its close proximity to Washington, D.C., Alexandria is a great city to see on its own or if you’re visiting our nation’s capital. There are plenty of things to do for less than $100 a day.

 

There are multiple neighborhoods to explore, so opt to stay in one spot or explore the entire city. A great place to start is the historic Old Town section.

 

Extra Perks Coffee Shop and Café is a great breakfast spot. The casual restaurant serves American breakfast classics and British dishes. Entrées run $2–12. Weekend brunch is available. Spend time exploring the city at your own pace on a self-guided tour. Visit Alexandria offers several suggested tour routes, depending on your interests. See the city’s architecture, murals, waterfront, Black history trail or walk them all!

 

Have lunch at Myron Mixon’s Pitmaster Barbeque. Award-winning pit-master Myron Mixon brings his competition barbecue dishes to this Old Town restaurant. Choose from a variety of barbecue classics, including ribs, pulled pork, beef brisket and smoked chicken. Sandwiches start at $11 and barbecue plates start at $14. There is also a location in Miami, Florida, and another opening soon in Hoboken, New Jersey. Spend time wandering the charming shops, cafés and boutiques on popular King Street. Visit the Torpedo Factory Art Center. Housed in a former naval munitions factory, the art center features galleries and studios of working artists. Admission is free.

 

Grab dinner at Virtue Feed and Grain. Housed in an 18th-century granary, the tavern serves elevated pub grub with a southern influence . Choose from items like fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits, duck poutine and burgers. Entrées start at $15.

 

End your night learning more about Alexandria’s haunted history on a ghost tour. Pricing and schedules vary.
