In the past few years Alexandria, Minnesota has been getting a lot of attention by magazines and web-sites. The latest positive feedback comes from VacationIdea.com. Along with cities such as Asheville (NC), Naples (FL) and Santa Fe (NM), it included Alexandria in a list of ’22 Best Small Town Family Weekend Destinations’.
The feature on Alexandria lists many reasons to visit the area that probably played into the decision of many of those that live here full-time. Including the observation that Alexandria ‘is the perfect place to escape from the daily grind’. I couldn’t agree more. I love big cities and love to visit them but more and more as I grow older, the work it takes to even visit a metropolitan area for a long weekend makes my appreciation for Alexandria grow. Buttons the dog agrees too.
