There's lots that's new and exciting in Fairfax
County, Virginia. Located directly across the
Potomac River from Washington, DC, Fairfax
County has always offered planners and groups
beautifully renovated meeting properties, lots of
exciting new restaurants and retail stores, and
plenty of world class, one-of-a-kind attractions.
The biggest new attraction, by far, though, is
the upcoming arrival of the Metrorail Silver
Line, which will extend the Washington, DC
Metrorail system to the Tysons Corner and Re-
ston areas of the county. Opening early in 2014,
the Silver Line will connect attendees
gathering at any of the Tysons Corner
or Reston hotels with everything the
National Capital area has to offer.
"Planners have always told us that
they love our hotels, our restaurants,
our shopping and our overall value,"
says Dean Miller, National Sales Man-
ager for Visit Fairfax. "Now we will
have the one piece of the puzzle that
was previously missing—easy and
convenient Metrorail access to down-
town Washington, DC, the Pentagon,
Reagan National Airport, and more."
Miller notes that groups can meet in
Fairfax County and easily travel to the US Capi-
tol for grassroots lobbying, baseball games at
Nationals Park, or sightseeing in downtown
Washington. "For many years, planners have
told us they couldn't wait until the Metro arrived,
and now it's finally here."
