Fairfax County travel guide

Architectural Buildings · Specialty Museums · National Parks
Fairfax County is the most populous commonwealth in the state, and is best known for sheltering national intelligence groups such as the Central Intelligence Agency. The county played a vital role in early American history--it was explored by Captain John Smith, and George Washington built Mount Vernon atop one of its hills. The Potomac River separates the area from Washington, D.C. Communities within the county are connected by well-maintained bike lanes that allow residents to commute to work through the countryside.

The Equality State
Still largely undiscovered by foreign tourism, Wyoming is anything but "the bunchgrass edge of the world," as a writer once called it. Though the state's geography includes mostly wide-open plains, swaths of high desert, and sweeping mountain ridges, it also contains many small towns filled with places to visit, such as historical buildings, museums, shops, and restaurants. A great place to discover the last vestiges of the Old West, Wyoming's tourist attractions include the country's first national park, Native American reservations, and a smattering of ghost towns from the early frontier days. As you travel across this "Cowboy State," remember that distances between towns can be vast, requiring more advance vacation planning than travel in more densely populated parts of the country.
