Directions to Charlotte's House:
Get onto the George Washington Parkway, either by taking the 2nd exit after crossing the 14th Street Bridge, or by taking Rock Creek Parkway and crossing Memorial Bridge, then circling around to the Parkway. Continue South on the GW Parkway into Old Town Alexandria.
Once in Old Town, turn right on King Street. Stay on King Street out of Old Town, and up the hill. The huge Masonic Memorial/Temple will be on your left.
Alternate: if you want to avoid the traffic on King Street, turn right on Cameron Street from the GW Parkway instead (it's 1 block North of King). Follow Cameron until it ends completely, at a traffic signal, and then turn right. You'll be back on King street, headed up the hill towards the Masonic Memorial.
Turn left on Upland Place (the street before it is Carlisle Drive, and it's not too far up the hill past the Temple). Stay on Upland until it ends at Moncure Drive. Turn left on Moncure. My house (164 Moncure) is the first on your right, just after you turn. Park anywhere on the street.
You can also take 395 South and exit at King Street East. Follow directions FROM NORTHERN VIRGINIA below.
FROM THE BELTWAY:
Cross the American Legion Bridge and take the GW Parkway south. See above instructions from there.
OR, take the Beltway around (whichever direction suits you) to the Telegraph Road North exit.
Stay on Telegraph Road just a short distance, then exit to Rt. 236/Duke Street West, towards Landmark.
Once on Duke Street, take your first right onto Taylor Run Parkway, and take an immediate right onto the Duke Street Service road. Take your 2nd left, onto Moncure Drive. My house is a block up, on the left, at 164 Moncure. Park anywhere on the street.
FROM NORTHERN VIRGINIA:
Get on Route 7/King Street East, towards Old Town Alexandria. Before getting to the Masonic Temple or Old Town, turn right on Upland Street. (Upland comes right after Highland Place. If you see the Temple on your right, you've gone too far.)
Stay on Upland until it ends at Moncure Drive. Turn left on Moncure. My house (164 Moncure) is the first on your right, just after you turn. Park anywhere on the street.
