Summer in Alexandria is such a special time of year. The hustle and bustle of visitors from near and far ignite a new energy, restaurants pour out onto King Street with outdoor dining, and the beauty of the water is on full display during these months. I feel that the spirit of Alexandria is really embodied during the summer and we as residents should get out there and enjoy it! Lucky for us, there are a ton of opportunities to do just that. Below are five events that I am looking forward to this summer.
