One-Two-Three-TOUR!

July 19, 2017

With all the sunny summer days to look forward to, the residents of ROSS’ Alexandria, VA, apartments are perfectly primed to take a look back in time.

When a city’s been around for as long as Alexandria has – over 250 years and counting – odds are it’s managed to accumulate quite a bit of history along the way. And that paves the way for tourism to become one of the mainstays of the city’s economy.

ROSS’ apartments in Alexandria are situated in places that make touring Alexandria (remember: there’s no “tourism” without a “tour”) as easy as stepping outside your door! There are dozens and dozens of wonderful tours to choose from, tailored to your tastes, interests and budget. Start your search for the perfect tour right here. We’ve made some suggestions to kick things off, so get out there and have some fun! We’ll chat some more when you get back.
