I am from the west coast and have never traveled in this area. In the summer we will be travelling from Philly to Wyndham Old Town Alexandria across from the King St Metro. It is a family trip and I am wondering about transportation options from Philly? We will have a rental car while in Philly but I was hoping to drop it off before heading to Alexandria. I was thinking the train could be more interesting (teens have never been on a train) but honestly I am really uninformed in this area. If anyone has any advice I would really appreciate it. I am definitely unsure of the need to transfer from one train to another to get to our final destination. Or maybe we should just keep the car rental and drop it in Old Town?
Any info/comments would be appreciated!
