The Romantic Charm of Alexandria

October 8, 2015

Paris, Venice and Alexandria all have one thing in common: they are cities built for romance.

As you stroll down the cobblestone streets toward the scenes of the sun setting over the water horizon, you can’t help but feel the magic of Alexandria.

To that we say, residents of ROSS’ Alexandria apartments, use your resources and take that special someone in your life on the most memorable date of their life!

If the romantic wheels in your mind have spun millions of awesome ideas into your head, making it nearly impossible to settle on one, don’t panic; we’ve mapped out four possible themes for a special evening to share with your loved one.

The Nautical Date

Start with a stroll down Alexandria’s historic King Street toward the dock, where you then catch the Potomac Riverboat Company’s evening river cruise. Your trip circles around the beautifully well-lit nighttime views of DC monuments, all while enjoying a gourmet meal as you dance the night away.

The Decadent Date

Accompany that special someone along an Alexandria food tour as you indulge in culinary excellence for an evening. “Explore historic Old Town Alexandria, a city rich in history, architecture and culinary delights. Join a professional guide as you stroll through the cobblestone streets enjoying samples of specialty dishes from Old Town’s unique and family-owned restaurants. The three-hour tour showcases the city’s historic sites that have stood since the colonial-era founding and the variety of restaurants that are housed in stately mansions and charming row houses.”

The “Get-To-Know Each Other” Date

These types of dates require an intimate setting without many interruptions; that is exactly what “the best coffee shop in the DC Metro area” (as named by the Washington City Paper) has to offer. Misha’s serves both amazing coffee and an intimate atmosphere. With accents such as “vintage refrigerators, framed paintings and photographs and a solid, pure jazz sound”, Misha’s becomes the perfect place to have a long personal conversation.

The Lively Night Date

This perfect evening starts with dinner at one of the many iconic restaurants along Alexandria’s King Street and ends with the enjoyment of an outstanding performance at The Birchmere. “The Legendary Birchmere Music Hall is a world-famous concert venue known for a nightly line-up of classic as well as up-and-coming jazz, country, R&B, folk and bluegrass artists in an intimate, relaxed setting.”

No matter how you choose to spend your evening, it should always end by coming home to a warm community where you’ll not only feel taken care of, you’ll feel right at home. Be swooned by that community today by taking a tour of ROSS’ Alexandria, VA apartments!
