A Special Note From Visit Fairfax


As the official tourism site for Fairfax County, Virginia, it's our job to give you information on Fairfax County and fun things to do in Virginia. However, right now, it seems like finding fun things to do in the midst of this national emergency seems nearly impossible. With that being said, we would like to send you a message that brighter days are indeed on the horizon.

Our attractions, parkshotels, restaurants, local businesses, and the rest of our hospitality community are ready to greet visitors with open arms when the world is ready to travel again. It will only be a matter of time before that happens, and we will be happy to serve you. 

This is indeed a tough time, and our thoughts are with everyone who has been impacted. We send our sincere appreciation to our first responders, healthcare employees, government officials, and everyone else who is working on the front lines to prevent the spread and impact of this virus.

When the time comes for you to plan your next vacation, we'll be here waiting to make it the best experience we possibly can.
