Not far. It is a 20 minute Metro ride from downtown DC to the King Street Metro station, at the edge of Old Town Alexandria. You can see the Washington Monument from the waterfront of Alexandria.

Once you are at the King street metro, there is a FREE trolley right down the mile of so of King Street to the Waterfront and the Torpedo Factory. You can walk back to the metro or pick up the trolley.

Here is the link to the city's web page on it with the stops. Notice there are detours for the Saint Patrick;s day parade.
