Here at the Kathy O’Neal Team, as I work with home buyers who are relocating from other areas, the question always comes up, “What should I know about living here in the Northern Virginia area?” Real estate issues come up first of course, but close behind is the desire to know about the community and quality of life issues that everyone is concerned about.
If you are moving into the area, there is a wonderful resource that I want you to know about. Even, or should I say especially, if you already live in the Fairfax and Loudoun area, you will definitely want to know about Fairfax County’s official destination organization, “Visit Fairfax.” When it comes to giving you fast and comprehensive information on cultural and community related activities, and describing what an amazing place we call home, nobody does it better.
We often get immune to the attractions and charms of our immediate environment, but if you check out the Visit Fairfax website you will get a quick reawakening on just how special it is to live in this part of the world. There is an unending set of attractions, shows, historical sites, and community happenings to enjoy. Check the Events Calendar as well as the local community spotlights, for examples.
If you are relocating to Fairfax County or surrounding area, you will find relocation information on my other website, but don’t forget to check the Visit Fairfax Visitor Toolkit. It is an excellent resource to acquaint you with the wonders that are in our own backyard.
Providing leadership for Visit Fairfax, Barry Biggar (along with his dedicated staff) is always ready to talk about the thousand and one reasons anyone should either visit or relocate to Fairfax County. We hope to interview Barry on a future Chantilly Radio show, but until then check out their website and enjoy the many attractions that bring tourists from all over the world into our home turf.
By the way, if you are in or near Tyson’s Corner, and you’d like to see the “Visit Fairfax” Visitor Center pictured below, it is located inside Tyson’s Corner Center, on the second floor, just under the escalators up to the food court level.
As always, if you are moving into the Fairfax or Loudoun area, and need any real estate related information, just contact us and we will get you whatever you need.
