NORTHERN VIRGINIA - (NOVA)

NORTHERN AREA
Northern Virginia (colloquially referred to as "NOVA" or "NoVA") consists of several counties and cities in the U.S. state of Virginia in a widespread region generally radiating southerly and westward from Washington, D.C. It is the most populous region of both Virginia and the Washington metropolitan area.

Northern Virginia is next door to our nation's capital - Washington, D.C. - yet has kept its own character reminiscent of colonial times, rambling plantations, equestrian farms and cobblestoned streets leading to quaint taverns, chic shops and historical treasures. Alexandria introduces visitors to the lifestyle of George and Martha Washington with visits to Mount Vernon Estate & Gardens and to The Lyceum Museum while Arlington memorializes our nation's soldiers and military history at Arlington National Cemetery, a shrine to the thousands of women and men who have died to keep our country free. You can also visit the Manassas Battlefield Park, site of the first major battlefield (also known as the Battle of Bull Run) of the Civil War - and the equally important Second Battle of Manassas (which convinced General Lee to invade the Union's own home ground).

Northern Virginia is a favorite destination of shoppers, from upscale shopping malls to bargain outlets and winery shops like Historic Town of Occoquan (art and antiques)) and the Potomac Mills Value Outlet Mall.

Remember, this region is considered "Horse Country" with steeplechase races, horse shows and polo matches. One of the most western place to visit is Marriott Ranch in Hume, with horses to ride, trap shooting and downhome hospitality! And for an upscale resort, stay at Landsdowne Resort in Sterling.
