I was apprehensive after reading all these scathing reviews but it’s really not a bad place to live. I find...Although crime seems to have risen, it’s by no means as bad as other cities that I have lived in. Of course, like everywhere, there are certain areas to avoid. It’s also a good idea to lock your car...I find that the city of Alexandria is slightly slower paced. It can be hard for people who are always in a rush, but living in Alexandria allows you to slow down and enjoy the process. Similar to the nearby city of Pineville, Alexandria is very family-oriented. Most places close early during the week. There really isn’t much of a nightlife or any loud fun. I loved every minute of living in Alexandria and will miss the city and all the people that I have met immensely!.
