Fairfax is waiting for you and your charter bus gang to come explore the history and fun this great destination has to offer.
Make the first stop on your charter bus tour Fairfax Station Railroad Museum. This railway station was built during the 1850s and this train station itself was the site of several historic battles during the Civil War and was used as an emergency medical facility for injured soldiers. The building has been authentically recreated, and now houses an interesting array of informative exhibits that are divided between the railroad industry and the Civil War. See the Norfolk & Western Caboose, examine Civil War uniforms and learn about how Clara Barton, who later created the Red Cross, volunteered to treat wounded soldiers here. There is a fantastic little gift shop on the premises for finding that perfect memento to remember this stop on your charter bus tour of Fairfax by.
Fairfax Visitor Center and Museum is another great historical destination on your charter bus excursion. This is located inside the former Fairfax Elementary schoolhouse, this is more than a typical visitor's center. It offers all of the information you could want about the area, with maps, brochures, booklets and newspapers that guide you to the best attractions, special events and businesses in the area - much of it for free. There is also a gift shop with trinkets and postcards. The staff is helpful and friendly too.
National Firearms Museum is an enlightening stop on your charter bus tour. Firearms of all types from the first attempts at making them to modern, civilian to military, are on display, along with ammunition and accessories that have been used over the years. Learn about the volatile role of guns in our society throughout time, especially during wars. Guests can also see antique firearms and guns that once belonged to historic figures such as Napoleon Bonaparte and Theodore Roosevelt.
Everyone loves golf and certainly everyone on your charter bus group. There are a couple of golf courses for your charter bus gang to choose from to take in a game. Try Oak Marr Golf Complex or Pleasant Valley Golfers' Club for a round of golf with your charter bus group. Both courses offer up 18-holes and a practice range for anyone in your charter bus tour that feels they just want to practice their strokes and not indulge in full round of golf.
Sully Historic Site is an interesting stop on your charter bus tour. This historic home was built by Richard Bland Lee, Northern Virginia's first Representative to congress. The house is furnished with antiques of the Federal period and outbuildings include a kitchen, smokehouse, and stone dairy. Your charter bus group can see living history of a simpler time of days gone by.
For some great food, take your charter bus group to Artie's for some traditionally great, all American food in a casual setting. Baskets of bread – fresh-baked slices from a local bakery or the restaurant's own addictive fried "Ozzies" – go nicely with microbrews or wines by the glass. For dessert, have your charter bus gang go with death by chocolate with the Chocolate Hurricane dessert. The Bailiwick Inn is Southern hospitality as its finest. An ever changing seasonal menu makes dining here a real treat for your charter bus group. Try the saddle of rabbit or the wild mushroom soup for something off the beaten culinary path. The Blue Iguana has great Mexican food, great drinks and a great staff waiting to give your charter bus group smiles for miles.
