Today we take the Yellow Line to the historic neighbouring city Alexandria, like Arlington in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

It's the transfer station L'Enfant Plaza in central Washington. All underground stations have got a similar interior style.

It's a colorful and popular smaller city indeed. King Street is the main (shopping)street of the city and offers a fine promenade between the train/metrostation and the port.

Thank you all, Alexandria is a nice and easy escape from the bussy big city life of the capital.

Thank you Chadoh! It's a nice town 15 minutes from downtown DC and with a great waterfront and marina. So I suppose it's a popular residential city as well.
