Neighborhoods

Alexandria – Alexandria, Virginia is a very large area that includes the City of Alexandria and homes which are also outside of the city located in Fairfax County. However, it’s still all called Alexandria.  Alexandria is bordered on the right by the Potomac River, to the North by Reagan Airport, Crystal City & South Arlington. To the West it’s bordered by Arlington, Annandale, Falls Church, & Springfield. To the South it’s bordered by Springfield, Lorton and Fort Belvoir. It can take nearly 40 min. to drive across Alexandria. Zips 22301,22302,22314 are the closest to downtown D.C. “The Parkway” as we call it, runs from Washington, D.C. (14th St Bridge) all the way South to Mount Vernon and Fort Belvoir. It’s a beautiful and easy drive along the river from D.C. to anywhere along “The Parkway”.  If you are on the West Side of Alexandria you will be without metro access (unless you take a bus or shuttle) and Route 395 (the moving parking lot into the city) will be your route into D.C. Cameron Station, a beautiful community, has its own metro shuttle to the Van Dorn Metro. Some condo complexes on the West side have metro shuttle service to either Van Dorn or further North, to the Pentagon Metro. No matter which area of Alexandria you choose it will be mixed with new homes, old homes, condos, townhomes, detached homes, duplexes, low rises and high rise buildings.  http://www.city-data.com/city/Alexandria-Virginia.html
