Chantilly is a census-designated place (CDP) in western Fairfax County, Virginia, United States. On the 14th (Thu), examine the collection at Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center.

Plan my Chantilly trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Houston to Chantilly is an approximately 5.5-hour combination of flight and bus. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and train. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Houston to Chantilly. Expect slightly colder temperatures when traveling from Houston in June; daily highs in Chantilly reach 83°F and lows reach 63°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Fri) so you can travel to Charlottesville.
