One of the most popular travel destinations in the United States is the Nation’s capital, Washington D.C. This is a vibrant city with lots of things to see and do which is why it’s become a tourist Mecca. The area surrounding D.C also offers quite a bit for tourists. The Falls Church tourism site touts several attractions, including Arlington National Cemetery, Cherry Hill Farmhouse and Tyson’s Corner Center. Located close to downtown D.C., Falls Church VA attracts tourists from all over the world.
One of the benefits of visiting Falls Church is the relatively inexpensive cost of lodging. It’s easy to fly directly into Dulles International Airport and then either rent a car or take hotel transportation. There are several good hotels within a few miles of Dulles which also offer transportation into D.C. This is often attractive to families who are vacationing in the area but who may not want to pay the hotel rates typically found within the Capital.
It is easy to plan a week’s worth of activities in and around the area. There are several national monuments within easy travel distance of Falls Church and the city’s tourism bureau offers deals on various attractions.
There are also many restaurants within the area offering cuisines from all over the world. From American burgers to Vietnamese Pho, Falls Church has it all. There is a small downtown area in the city where visitors can shop at a Whole Foods Market or try out local bakeries and chocolatiers.
Another great idea for visitors is to take in one of the many performances found in and about the city. The Twilight Tattoo just up the road in Arlington is an hour-long show presented by “Pershing’s Own”, the U.S. Army’s Old Guard.
Another great option is dinner and dancing at the State Theatre. First built in 1936, this lovely venue now operates as a full-service restaurant offering two bars and dancing areas. For those who enjoy comedy, a show by the Capitol Steps is an absolute must! This comedy troupe performs at the Ronald Reagan Building and offers a light and often, sarcastic take on the politics of the day.
Whether you are a family visiting for the first time or a business traveler with a bit of time on your hands, call the Falls Church Tourism Bureau for entertainment ideas. With a variety of options, there is surely something for everyone to enjoy.
