Visiting Northern Virginia

Northern Virginia is brimming with history, telling a tale of a nation in its infancy, and summer weather, with temperatures averaging is the mid-80's, provides the best conditions to check out the countless historic buildings and monuments throughout Arlington, Alexandria, and Springfield. Key points of interest include Arlington National Cemetery, which is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year, and Mount Vernon, the former estate of U.S. President George Washington.

Arlington is separated from the heart of our nation's capitol by the narrow Potomac River, which means its an ideal place to experience the quintessential Fourth of July. Neighborhoods like the Barcroft Neighborhood and Bellevue Forest, as well as Douglas Park and Fairlington Village, take to the streets the morning of the Fourth to celebrate America's Independence Day through old-fashioned community parades. The festivities start around 9 a.m. and continue with an all-day festival featuring live music, arts and crafts, food, games and kids activities at Long Bridge Park.

D.C.'s 4th of July Fireworks on the National Mall event sends a dazzling display into the air over the Potomac, reflecting off the water to create a truly moving spectacle. Get to the Marine Corps War Memorial (Iwo Jima) or the Air Force Memorial, both in Arlington, in time to claim a prime spot to view the show starting at 9:45 p.m.

Show more national pride at the Annual Springfield Boardwalk on August 26th. Community members, military, and elected officials walk across Springfield's Veteran Bridge to celebrate veterans and their relationship to the community they fought to protect.

Visitors seeking a sense of the arts during a northern Virginia visit won't want to miss the 2014 Alexandria King Street Art Festival, September 13th and 14th. The 12th annual edition of the celebration transforms Alexandria's historic main thoroughfare into an open-air gallery, lining the streets with paintings, life-size sculptures, jewelry, photography, ceramics and more.
