If you’re staying in tonight, Visit Alexandria has launched a new virtual tour and experiences page.
Tourism has taken a substantial hit during the pandemic, and the effort allows visitors to virtually stroll down King Street, take a virtual ghost tour and get in a yoga workout.
“Visit Alexandria is bringing our city experience to you,” the tourism bureau said on its website. “While we wish you were here, we know these virtual experiences will make you and your attendees feel Alexandria’s small town charm from home.”
The virtual tours allow visitors to look into a number of hotels, including the Morrison House and the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center.
Visit Alexandria also offers ALX At Home allowing visitors to “experience Alexandria’s restaurants, shops and attractions from the comfort of your own home.”
The initiative is not part of Visit Alexandria 360, which launched in 2017 and showcases 360-degree tours of 20 locations around the city.
Incidentally, in-person ghost tours are back starting in October.
We are excited to launch a new virtual tours and experiences page to bring Alexandria to you. Explore Old Town from your computer today and plan your meeting for the future. https://t.co/VUI6S4opcd #MeetALX
