Is King Street (Alexandria) Right for You?
Ballston Neighborhood: The King Street station sits on the business end of Alexandria. Within several blocks you’ll find plenty of unique restaurants and main street shopping. One downside to the King Street station is that it sits further away from the waterfront and main attractions. The metro station is several blocks away from the historic downtown and waterfront area of Alexandria. Instead of walking use the free trolley for a lift from the Metro to the historic old town. The area around King Street itself is bustling every day of the week, and is an urban setting. Families and all types of travelers can’t go wrong with Alexandria.
