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. Get some cultural insight at NRA National Firearms Museum and Little Round Top. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Seminary Ridge Museum, Gettysburg and Room Escape Games. Explore Fairfax's surroundings by going to Gettysburg (Evergreen Cemetery, Gettysburg Diorama, & more), Museum of the Shenandoah Valley (in Winchester) and Chancellorsville Battlefield Visitor Center (in Spotsylvania). There's much more to do: take in the history at Chatham Manor, contemplate the long history of The Rising Sun Tavern, stroll the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery, and enjoy some diversion at National Rifle Association of America.
