Burke Lake Fall Foliage

Fall 2020 in Northern Virginia

For most of the world, people think summer is the ideal time to tour the National Capital Region. However, ask a local, and they'll tell you it's fall. The crowds of summer die down at popular attractions. The air is crisp and clear and perfect for outdoor activities before the cold winter months. And, oh my, the colors! Each autumn, Fairfax County dons a jaw-dropping cloak of sunset-colored hues. Seen against the backdrop of sites like George Washington's Mount Vernon, Great Falls Park and The Winery at Bull Run, the effect is all the more profound. Maybe even consider planning a colorful hike. Use our guide below and bring yourself, your family or your friends to witness this spectacle of nature for yourselves in Fairfax County, Virginia!
