Two things come to mind when we think of fall one FOOTBALL is BACK, and two outdoor activities. After a long scare for a couple of months of a NFL lockout, Football is finally back. On September 11th the New York Giants visit the Nations Capital to battle the hometown Washington Redskins. Giants vs. Redskins is one of the most heated rivalries in the NFL. Come stay with us at the Holiday Inn Express Alexandria/Ft. Belvoir for a weekend trip to enjoy football in the Nations Capital. Take advantage of our complimentary Metro shuttle. Why get stuck in a messy commute getting to the game, when you can use the Metro train, which will take you within a block of Fedex Field. For tickets visit the Washington Redskins website. If you are not a football fan there are other things to do around town. You can hop onto the Capital Yacht Charter for Oktoberfest on the Potomac. Enjoy a fall night on the Potomac river by celebrating Oktoberfest on the Potomac- Beer & brats cruise. On Fridays and Saturdays from September 9th to October 29th you will get an opportunity to step on to the brand new luxury yacht, Virginia’s Jewel! The 90-minute cruise on the Potomac River features 2 bars and full spread buffet of Brats and Sausages. For tickets and details visit the Capital Yacht Charters website.
