Beautiful old church that includes both George Washington and Robert E. Lee's pews. Lots of history. Beautiful gardens on the side. Site of Washington's funeral. Definitely worth the stop

In the middle of Cameron Street, you will find out this lovely church open to everyone. A small garden is open and you can cross it. Few graves are still laying on the grass. The church itself is well preserved.

Christ Church in Alexandria is seeped in history having been completed in 1773. Sadly I actually learned more about the church and accompanying burial grounds after I returned home. I would like to go back now that I have a little more knowledge and revisit....More

Christ Church is a beautiful example of Colonial architecture. Alexandria was Robert E. Lee's home town and this was his church.

There is street parking, We walked from our hotel. Another option is using the free trolley that runs up and down King Street and walking about two blocks.
