These days, Northern Virginia is a beautiful region filled with luxurious attractions such as golf courses, shopping, wineries and history.

There are wonderful fine dining facilities to explore, like Carmello's Ristorante, or Foundation, where you can enjoy a seven-course meal that is prepared in front your eyes and paired with exquisite wines.
Northern Virginia has its fair share of fascinating historic attractions, like the Alexandria black history museum and archeology museum.
