I never been in the city hall. But is has a ledge around the fountain to sit and relax...a pretty setting. You can see many people stopping to take pictures. There is usually a board telling you of all the upcoming events in Old Town.

The Alexandria City Hall is an old historic building that continues to serve as the City's city hall. The building is located in the center of Olde Towne and is well known as the location of the weekly weekend market for crafts, foods, flowers and more.

I find this little plaza to be underutilized. We missed the farmers market because it occurred earlier in the day, by saturday afternoon there was no much going on there. I would have expected music and smaller vendors, it would have made a huge difference.

The fountains and the huge American flag drew us to this spot. There is also a regualary schedule Farmer's Market held here. Can catch the free trolley right in front.

Took a rest break there and was a very pleasant place to relax. Local artists sang and did portraits while we were there. We did not get to sit at the pictured tables and chairs but there is a wide retaining wall that worked well to sit on.
