1. Re: Historic sites in Fairfax

Two places immediately come to mind--Sully Plantation, just north of the Route 50/Route 28 junction on Route 28. The Manassas battlefield(in Prince William County, not Fairfax County)--take Route 28 south to I-66--head west and you will see the exit clearly marked.

Another possibility--Old Town Fairfax. In Fairfax City, roughly by the intersection of Route 236 (Little River Turnpike) and Route 123 (Ox Road). There are some old buildings in the area that have been well preserved.

We stayed at the Bailiwick Inn in the midst of history and loved it. It was a couple of years ago but I hear it's even better now: bailiwickinn.com

You may want to check out Old Town Alexandria or even parts of Georgetown both a short drive from Fairfax. Then also out 66 west there is the Mnassass Battle Field.
