Zoos, Farms, & 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 NOVA Wild - a 30-acre family-friendly zoo home to zebras, antelope, bison, ostrich, camels, alligators and more.
Stay tuned for adorable baby animal updates!
