ZOOS & AQUARIUMS
If you're feeling a little wild on your stay in Fairfax County, plan a visit to the nearby (and free!) Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington, DC, or Baltimore-based National Aquarium (only 45 minutes away) in Maryland.
If you'd rather stay within the County, you may be surprised to know that Fairfax County is home to the Reston Zoo - a 30-acre family-friendly zoo home to zebras, antelope, bison, ostrich, camels, alligators and more.
Stay tuned for adorable baby animal updates!
