From FXVA: When It’s Cold Outside, You’ll Find Warmth Within

Fairfax County, VA Around Town

OK. So it’s not exactly picnic weather. And while our beautiful parks do take on a bare-limbed beauty in winter, the season’s greatest reward comes from discovering Fairfax County’s interesting indoor attractions. Like the Angelika Film Center showing art and cult-favorite films in a cutting-edge environment. Or the Workhouse Arts Center, showcasing nearly 100 professional and emerging artists. Or Jammin’ Java, with some of the region’s best live music. And while you’re indoors, why not tour the massive St. James indoor sports complex, too?

From shopping to culture to the museums and other ideas highlighted below, winter lures you inside to explore some of the region’s most memorable attractions! So stay comfortable—and fascinated—year-round with a weatherproof trip to Fairfax County and the National Capital Region!
