We stopped in for a visit to Christ Church while spending an afternoon in Alexandria, VA. This is a historic Episcopal church that George Washington attended during his life. The church dates back to the 1700's, but still holds worship services every weekend. The grounds are really nice, and it was interesting to stroll through the cemetary, where gravesites date back to the 1700's. The church is open to visitors during the day, and you can ask for a tour if a volunteer is available. We did not do the tour as we had small children with us, but we did observe one in progress. There is a small gift shop/welcome center, where historical data is on the wall for learning about the church. This stop was really interesting, but does not require alot of time (maybe an hour at most). Lovely stop with historical significance, and definately worth the time to see it. It is within walking distance from King St.

Christ Church is an "attraction' only in so far as an eagle is a "bird."

A center for mission, Christian worship, prayer, and community since before the founding our nation. Come and See!
