Gateway To Our Nation's Capital
Northern Virginia is next door to our nation's capital - Washington, D.C. - yet has kept its own character reminiscent of colonial times, rambling plantations, equestrian farms and cobblestoned streets leading to quaint taverns, chic shops and historical gems.
Fairfax County is a treasure trove of unique historic sites, museums, performance venues, and natural wonders. Visit and discover such national treasures such as George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate & Gardens, the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, the Workhouse Arts Center, Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts, and Great Falls National Park.
A beautifully-preserved historic district on the Potomac waterfront, Old Town Alexandria is the heart of the city George Washington called home. Today, Old Town’s cobblestone streets and red brick sidewalks hum with an energy that attracts everyone from presidents to pet lovers to some of the region’s best chef-driven restaurants; a vibrant arts culture, including the nationally renowned Torpedo Factory Art Center; a thriving boutique scene; numerous boat tours and water taxis; and creative cocktails and craft brews, including Alexandria’s own Port City Brewing Company, recently named the Best Small Brewery in America.”
This region is considered "Horse Country" with steeplechase races, horse shows and polo matches. One of the most western places to visit is Marriott Ranch in Hume, with horses to ride, trap shooting and downhome hospitality. For an upscale resort, try Landsdowne in Leesburg.
