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." ■ Dean Miller, National Sales Manager Dean has almost a quarter- century of experience help- ing planners organize more effective meetings in Fair- fax County.
