  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Fairfax, Virginia, is a small city in Northern Virginia. Originally known as Fairfax Court House, it is home to the burgeoning Fairfax County Court House complex. Yet, it is not part of surrounding Fairfax County. (All incorporated cities in Virginia are indenpendent, they are not under any county jurisdiction.) Fairfax is also home to to George Mason University, one of the largest Virginia public universities.

    Fairfax was a small easy going town from long ago. On a cold winter day you could lay down on US Hwy 50 center stripe for minutes without any traffic. Now its a typical very busy suburb of Washington DC...still a nice place to live.

    • Chantilly
      Chantilly, Virginia, is located in Northern Virginia, in western Fairfax County, right on the border with Loudon County. Chantilly is probably best known to travelers as the site of Washington Dulles International Airport. But it is also home to many high-tech companies along the Dulles Technology Corridor. AOL is but one Internet company that has its headquarters here. The Dulles Expo and Conference Center on Route 28 is the site of many trade and hobby shows. Whether you are into model trains, crafting, or computers, there will be a show here for you.

      Is there any history here among all this glass and concrete? Yes, the Fairfax County Park Authorty operates two nearby interpretive sites: Colvin Run Mill and Sully.
      Chantilly, VA, USA
    • Springfield
      Springfield, Virginia, is a suburban community 17 miles south of Washington, DC. It’s not an incorporated city, but politically is part of Fairfax County. Springfield residents nevertheless have a strong community identity characterized by the neighborhood in which they live: Central Springfield, North Springfield, or West Springfield.

      Springfield has long been a transportation hub and gateway to the Nation’s Capital. The Franconia-Springfield Metro station in Central Springfield affords all-day parking and convenient Metro transportation for visitors to Washington. It’s also convenient to shopping at Springfield Mall and nearby specialty stores. The massive Springfield Interchange, where Interstate Highways 95 from Richmond and Baltimore, 495 from Tyson’s Corner, and 395 from Washington all converge in the “Mixing Bowl,” brings in highway travelers from near and far. You might visit Springfield if you are traveling along Interstate 95 and stop for a meal or an overnight stay.

      Springfield’s population is diverse. You’ll find "mom-and-pop" ethnic restaurants and stores in Central Springfield and good Asian cuisine and Greek-style “family restaurants” in all parts of the community.

      Founded in 1854 as a railway stop, Springfield does have a history, though one must carefully seek it out amid the suburban facade. Parks like Lake Accotink Park and Hidden Pond Nature Center preserve natural habitats and provide outdoor recreation spots for residents.
      Springfield, VA, USA
    • Falls Church
      Falls Church is a city with all services centered on hwy 7 in Northern Virginia near Washington DC. I expect the auto traffic is very bad there.
      Falls Church, VA, USA
    • Reston
      It was long ago when Reston Ave. was just a dirt road to nowhere in Fairfax County. US silly high school kids used to drag race our parents V-8 cars there. Things changed for the better when they planned very well before construction started. Reston was built to be a special country home with tall trees; loaded with great walking and bike trails. You could now visit this place in many moons.
      Reston, VA, USA
    • Herndon
      Herndon, Virginia is a large city in Northern Virginia, I suspect it was created by wealthy influential landowners. It encompasses Dulles International Airport and Reston. Reston is home to many LARGE software development companies - think Accenture, Oracle, SAP, Computer Associates, Nextel, etc. etc.

      Most significant about Herndon - it is the best connecting city for Washington DC and Dulles Airport. To reach DC you could leave your car at the Park & Ride for free. You could also take a short ride by taxi to the park and ride. After that you can take a fast take a fast commuter bus to DC or to West Falls Church metro station.

      With a very large residential community, this is not a mecca for party-goers, rather it morphs into a bedroom community after office hours.

      Several fine dining options, hotels, shopping centers, Malls are also found in this area.
