  • In May, Visit Fairfax hosted two domestic bloggers on a week-long trip through Northern Virginia highlighting the best of the region. These connections came about through Visit Fairfax's membership in the Mid-Atlantic Tourism Public Relations Alliance (MATPRA) and the trip was organized by the five localities that make up Northern Virginia. Two other similar hosted trips are on the books for this month and next month with different outlets as well.
