Welcome to the Burke and Lorton Areas of Fairfax County
The Burke and Lorton area of Fairfax County is a nature and art lover's dream. Located along Route 123, there are plenty of things to do in Burke & Lorton. Burke is named for Silas Burke and his name is tied to one of the area's most favorite natural resources, Burke Lake. The area is home to regional parks like Fountainhead Regional Park which offers some of the best bike trails in all of Northern Virginia, and Occoquan Regional Park that has canoe and kayak rentals for a day out on the water for leisure or fishing. Lorton is home of the Workhouse Arts Center, one of the most unique art destinations found anywhere, as it was built on the grounds of an old reformatory. One of the region's best golf courses, Laurel Hill Golf Club, is a main draw to the area as well, as is the National Turning Point Suffragist Memorial. All this, and two local breweries - Fair Winds Brewing Co. and G34.3 Brewing Company - make for a great adventure in this area of the County.
