Alexandria Reviews

1 review
There is not much in Alexandria. The highlights include a lake about 3 miles out of town, however the lake isn’t that pleasant to swim in. They have a gas station right off of the interstate and a place to eat at called Joe’s Cafe. More so it is a nice town that is relatively close to Mitchell, but you still get that small town feeling.
