Our Must-See Attractions
You’ll never be at a loss for something to do here in Fairfax County.
Fairfax County is just minutes from Washington, D.C., so we are a convenient jumping-off spot for your visit to the national capital region. And we have great attractions here too.
For example, if you’re into aviation, you’ll want to make the National Air and Space Museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center your first stop. It’s right next to Dulles Airport.
Prefer to travel back in time? Then visit our many historic landmarks, including:
- Mount Vernon, the estate of George Washington;
- Gunston Hall, home of George Mason, the father of the Bill of Rights; and,
- Sully and Woodlawn historic sites.
And if the outdoors is your thing, Fairfax County is home to two national parks — Great Falls and Wolf Trap — as well as a national wildlife refuge created for bald eagles (Mason Neck) and hiking and biking trails galore.
