Outings for Any Day in Alexandria

February 15, 2018

Presenting the best things to do near ROSS’ apartments in Alexandria, VA.

From romantic, to exciting, to pet-friendly, there a hundred things for you to do in Alexandria, VA. Whatever occasion you’re celebrating, there’s an Alexandria neighborhood with the mood you have in mind and activities you can enjoy. Read on for some last minute Valentine’s ideas, fun daytime activities and family-friendly destinations.



It’s not too late to plan an unforgettable date for Valentine’s! Delay your night out by just one day and you can get a reservation for two at Hanks Oyster Bar. Or you can attend comedy night at Port City Brewing, the longest running brewery in the Washington, DC, area.

And there are fantastic performers booked for Thursday and Friday at “America’s legendary music hall”, The Birchmere. If country music is your style, try Phil Vassar. Or see Eric Robinson for some smooth soul and R&B. If you’re not sure what you’re in the mood for, see the Tedeschi Trucks Band for a bit of everything. The band is self-described “American roots music: rock, blues, soul, and especially gospel.”

Check out the regional blog for apartments in Alexandria, VA, for more ideas.



Whether you’re looking to add some excitement to your night or just have a fun day out with friends, you can’t go wrong with Escape Quest. Each room has a flavorful description and a listed difficulty. Stop by Virtue Feed & Grain for a hearty and authentic American dining experience. Or check out the historic Old Town Farmers’ Market in…wait for it…Right! Old Town Alexandria! The market is open from 7 a.m. to noon year-round, making it a standby for early birds. For families living at the Heritage at Old Town apartments in Alexandria, VA, this spot is just five minutes away.



A few more activities for families that will take a little longer include the Colonial Scavenger Hunt self-guided tour of historical Alexandria, Cameron Run Regional Park and Potomac Riverboat Company tours.

Cameron Run Regional Park has a lot to offer families: batting cages, mini-golf and a waterpark! On Mondays after 3 p.m., you can get a free child’s round of mini-golf with every adult round. The Great Waves Waterpark opens Memorial Day weekend.

The Potomac Riverboat Company offers a 45-minute boat tour of Alexandria that stretches down to the National Harbor waterfront and up to Ronald Reagan National Airport. And for those with a pet-friendly Alexandria apartment, consider this canine cruise!
