Alexandria among trust's Distinctive Destinations
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - Alexandria has made the National Trust for Historic Preservation's annual list of distinctive destinations.
The group says the city's efforts to save its past allows visitors to dine at the same tavern where Thomas Jefferson celebrated his presidential inauguration and walk among original 18th- and 19th-century structures.
Visitors also can walk and bike on its trails, and the Old Town district offers shopping and dining.
The annual Dozen Distinctive Destination program recognizes places that have thriving downtowns, cultural diversity, and a strong commitment to historic preservation, sustainability and revitalization. Voters can cast online ballots for their top choice.
The other cities are Chapel Hill, N.C.; Colorado Springs; Eureka and Sonoma, Calif.; New Bedford, Mass.; St. Paul, Minn.; Paducah, Ky.; San Angelo, Texas; Sheridan, Wyo.; Dandridge, Tenn.; and Muskogee, Okla.
