After traveling with our young daughter to the DC area, we took our second day in town to regroup and relax.
We found this quaint park a lovely place to spend a couple hours relaxing and eating a slice of delicious pistachio cake we had gotten from a wonderful Mediterranean Bakery and Cafe in Alexandria.
The museum is small but well kept. There are interesting civil war items on display as well as helpful background information.
We loved how easy it was to get to this location as well as how quiet it was when we got there. Several folks were out walking their dogs or running on the outskirts of the fort area.
A great spot to enjoy the sunshine and get away from the crowds!
