The DC Metro region contains a network of nearly 400 automated bicycle rental stations for residents and visitors through the Capital Bikeshare system.  Bicycles rented from one station may be returned to any station within the system.  The Lee-Fendall House is only two blocks away from the Capital Bikeshare station at St Asaph and Pendleton streets.  For more information, visit Alexandria’s Capital Bikeshare page.


The museum has capacity for 5 vehicles in its bricked parking area in front of the museum off Oronoco Street.  Street parking is free on Oronoco Street but is limited to three hours on weekdays.  The closest public parking lot is at the intersection of St. Asaph and Cameron Streets.

Bus and motorcoach parking is limited in the Old Town area.  For more information about motorcoach parking, and pick-up and drop off zones, please follow this link to the City of Alexandria’s Motorcoach Information page.
