To Take Advantage of All Our Nation’s Capital Has to Offer

As you may know, each year a different, unique American city plays host to the annual Capability Counts conference. This year’s picturesque setting is Alexandria, VA, located just across the Potomac from our nation’s capital and a stunning destination in its own right. Rich in history and bustling with energy, this northern Virginia hotspot has something for everyone:

  • Before the White House, there was Mount Vernon. Less than ten miles from Alexandria, visit the home of our nation’s first president.
  • An incredible selection of restaurants, many featuring outdoor dining
  • Hop onto the Metro and make your way into D.C. to visit some of the new monuments that may have opened since your last visit, like the MLK Jr Memorial and the National WWII Memorial
  • Gorgeous public gardens
  • Abundant historical military sites, including Fort Stevens, the Lee Mansion, and the Lincoln Cottage
  • Take a spring evening stroll along the Potomac, and stop for a cocktail or dessert at a riverfront bistro
  • Tour the Newseum in nearby D.C. to learn about the history of our nation’s press
  • Take part in one of Alexandria’s many walking tours, featuring costumed guides and local experts
  • Visit King Street, Alexandria’s charming shopping destination

…and much more. There are many compelling amazing reasons to attend this year’s conference; between the excellent technical learning, influential networking opportunities, and historic location, you’ll find yourself immersed in knowledge and opportunity.

We can’t wait to see you there!
