Recreation - Northern Virginia offers a myriad of outdoor recreation activities. The activities range from water-oriented pleasures along the Potomac River to viewing our nation's fabulous monuments. Our public lands offer the opportunity to camp, fish, swim, hike, boat, view one our nation's largest heron rookeries and much more.
Climate - Summers in Northern Virginia promise high heat and humidity especially in the low-lying area just south of Washington, D.C. West of the capitol, the land rises a few hundred feet offering a bit of relief from the dense moist air. Spring and fall are the best times to visit the area. Cool temperate breezes make visitation very enjoyable. Winter can be pleasantly mild or biting cold with temperatures dropping below freezing.
The Northern Virginia Travel Region lies in the northeast area of the state just south of our nation's capitol, Washington, D.C.
