This is a great location for a high school cross country meet. We've been here numerous times for practices, practice meets, and regular meets. A nice, pleasant place to visit. Fairfax county residents do not pay admission. Military members stationed nearby have to show proof of residency, but are also free.

Small little "lake" is actually drainage for the community. Nice walking path around it was often crowded. Better to drive a few more miles to Burke Lake.

Outside D.C. in Northern Virginia. Tour boat rides, pedal boat rentals, carousel, beach front, playground equipment, hiking trails, snack bar, etc.
My wife and I drove here for a wonderful fall hike around the lake. Also a great place to walk your dog. We the hike around the lake is pretty neat, but also pretty long - there's no real shortcut. Great for running too, if you like the running on terrain that's a bit rougher.

Small museum that highlights the long history of firearms.
Even if you don’t support the 2nd Amendment the history of firearms is spectacular. Those who enjoy firearms will be amazed at the inventory and match grade guns on display along with write ups and brief history of the weapons on display.
If you have ever just seen in a book guns this museum gives you up close looks of weapons from their inception.
Make sure you a lot three or more hours as you wonder the museum at your own pace and get a history lesson along your tour.

Hands-on nature exhbits, live turtles and snakes, dress up, nature programs, hiking trails, butterfly crossing
It's nice to have a place like Hidden Oaks as part of the county park system. For one thing, it has preserved some beautiful hilly land from the developers, in a heavily populated area. It is also a free, educational destination for children that does not involve some commercial enterprise or pop culture. Preschoolers and elementary age kids can enjoy the hands-on learning in the nature center, including a faux treehouse, live turtles and snakes, displays of local wildlife. You can take advantage of guided, scheduled activities inside or on the numerous trails of the property. There are nearby swings, play equipment, and picnic areas. Check their website or call for scheduled free activities.

My expectations were not high since this was fast food but Thai Max fell way below them. The Pad Thai was bland, almost tasteless. Seafood tasted fishy. There's a reason this place has the shortest line in the food court.

One of our favorite places to walk our dog. Beautiful tall trees and several trails to choose from. We always see other families walking dogs. The parking lot has a map of the trails and they are marked. You can walk really far or not. There are kayak rentals on the river and a snack bar. Really gorgeous views every direction. It's a really nice drive on Hampton road to get there. Just like you are far out in the country but close to town. Who knew there were such unspoiled beautiful places so close to the city!

Veterans of every American war from the Revolution to the country's most recent conflicts are buried at Arlington, which was officially declared a military cemetery in 1864. Among the more than 260,000 dead are three unidentified service members, buried at the Tomb of the Unknowns, and John F. Kennedy, whose gravesite is marked by an eternal flame.
We took the Metro over to the cemetery and just found our way to the places we wanted to see. Since most people go to the same spots it was easier to navigate since we just followed the crowd.
You will need to bring your patience for being around the school groups. They were a little rowdy and sometimes it was the chaperones being loud too.
Anyone that isn’t in good shape to do all the walking up hills may want to take a tram. It will be a while before I beat the number of floors my iPhone says we did as we walked that day.

We discovered this hidden gem many years ago during a pre-school field trip and loved it! The playground is small, but fun. The nature center always has interesting exhibits and good questions to ask little ones. The walk around the pond has a lot to look for that changes depending on the season. The staff is helpful and relaxed. I think strollers are ok.
