Fairfax, colloquially Central Fairfax, Downtown Fairfax, Fairfax City, Oldtown Fairfax, Historic Fairfax, or the City of Fairfax, is an independent city in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Popular historic sites such as Antietam National Battlefield and George Washington's Mount Vernon are in your itinerary. Visiting Skyline Drive and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park will get you outdoors. Get out of town with these interesting Fairfax side-trips: Alexandria (Fort Ward Museum and Park, The Basilica of Saint Mary, & more), Arlington (U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial & Mount Vernon Trail) and Copper Fox Distillery (in Sperryville). Spend the 8th (Thu) exploring nature at Great Falls Park. Spend the 10th (Sat) exploring nature at Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts. There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Arlington National Cemetery, take an in-depth tour of NRA National Firearms Museum, hike along Old Rag Mountain Hike, and see the interesting displays at Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center.
