About Fairfax

Fairfax is a vibrant city surrounded by Fairfax County. The city is located in Northern Virginia, only 17 miles from Washington, D.C. Fairfax's most popular attraction is the Historic Blenheim House, a farmhouse inhabited by Union soldiers during the Civil War.

Although a strong appreciation for the town's history is evident in vintage buildings and historical markers, the city's shops and restaurants also have a youthful vibe, thanks to the student population of nearby George Mason University.
