Welcome to Fairfax, VA

Academia and urban style thrive in a trendy Virginia neighborhood

A unique blend of suburban ease and urban vibrance, Fairfax is brimming with youthful energy and endless possibilities. George Mason University, the highly ranked darling of US News and World Report, draws passionate students and brilliant professors, while the quaint residential suburbs serve as an idyllic backdrop for family life. With winding, tree-lined streets and an easy Metro ride to the nation’s capital, Fairfax allows residents to have it all – a serene, country retreat with all the trappings of sophisticated city life. Nestled in the heart of Fairfax County, this trendy town was once known as the Town of Providence and served as a quiet farming community. Renamed after Thomas Fairfax, who was granted Virginia land by King Charles, Fairfax sits on a famous civil war site. This rich sense of heritage weaves through the very fiber of the close-knit community and is reflected in the Colonial Revival and Federal styles of the area’s historic homes. 
 
The elegant Fairfax Corner is the area’s premier shopping destination and offers residents an impressive lineup of bistros and boutiques, as well as specialty stores. Catch a movie with friends, roll out your yoga mat in a hip studio, or enjoy an intimate dinner for two at one of the many top-tier restaurants. Ruth's Chris Steak House always impresses with world-class hospitality and elevated steakhouse fare, while Crafthouse dazzles with local and regional spirits, wine, scotch, whiskey, and bourbon. The fresh seafood fare at Artie's blends classic tastes with a contemporary twist, and pairs it all with handcrafted cocktails. There is perhaps no better place on earth to hold a Fall Festival than in this vibrant Virginia setting. Sip hot apple cider and find the perfect pumpkin all while basking in the glow of the fiery reds and vivid oranges of the area’s stunning fall foliage. Whether you prefer cozy cashmere sweaters or the heat of the summer sun on your skin, Van Dyck Park provides a beautiful way to relax in Fairfax’s wild beauty. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the Chocolate Lovers Festival is a sweet treat from Fairfax to its dynamic residents. Held in historic Old Town Fairfax, this three-day event celebrates community, commerce, and, of course, chocolate.

Home to the esteemed George Mason University, Fairfax boasts an impressive selection of public schools through the renowned Fairfax County Public School System, as well as prestigious private academies, including St Anthony Academy for children in kindergarten through eighth grade.
