About Fun in Fairfax VA

Fun in Fairfax VA is on a mission to uncover funness in Northern Virginia, with occasional side trips to DC and surrounding areas. We’re always looking for cool local places to explore, hike, bike, eat, drink, learn, and play and we’re sharing our favorites here.

Charles and Julie McCool are long-time Fairfax County residents, avid local explorers, and parents of twin high schoolers. Charles started Fun in Fairfax in 2010, with a light-hearted Twitter account capturing cool and funny spots in Fairfax County.


In 2014, Julie launched the expanded FuninFairfaxVA.com site, with regular updates on places to explore and dine, plus a weekly round-up of local events and festivals.

Be sure to follow Fun in Fairfax on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram and share your favorites too!
