City Guide
Fairfax Station
Moving to Fairfax Station

If you're looking for places to rent in Fairfax Station, you won't have to search for very long. This town is chock-full of house rentals and apartment rentals, as well as condos and townhouses. The best way to find apartments is to go online and use an apartment locator, but you can also check newspaper and yellow pages ads. If you're looking for rental homes, it really helps to drive around town and look for rental signs, because you may be able to find a great deal that hasn't yet been advertised.

Since Fairfax Station is so close to DC, don't expect to find too many bargains here. Likewise, rentals are in high demand, so don't hesitate for long if you think you've found the perfect property. Upon signing your lease, you can expect to pay first month's rent, plus a refundable security deposit of several hundred dollars; and don't be surprised if you're also asked to pay the last month's rent up front as well. The good news is that there's no real seasonal rental boom here, so rates and availability stay pretty consistent all year round.

Living in Fairfax Station

Fairfax Station has one of those mild Northern Virginia climates that denizens of the upper Southern states always rave about. You can expect to get winter temperatures that are just cold enough to keep things brisk, without your having to endure snow-clogged streets and bone-freezing temperatures. January highs range around the mid-to-upper 40s, with lows hovering in the 20s and the area gets just under 20 inches of snow a year. Summers can get fairly warm, with highs hovering around 90 (don't forget the humidity bump), but this area does get a certain amount of rainfall to cool things off.

Cycle Town

Maybe it's because of those lush, shady country lanes, but Virginians do love their bicycles and Fairfax Station is reasonably bike / scooter friendly. You can also get around by bus, courtesy of the Fairfax Connector and you can take the Metro rail all the way into DC. If you need to go further afield, Fairfax Station is only 18 miles away from Washington / Dulles Airport.

History

One of the best ways to find out about the history of the area is to visit the Fairfax Station Railroad Museum (11200 Fairfax Station Road). Through photos, documents and artifacts, you'll learn about Fairfax Station's role during the Civil War and how the railroad changed the industrial and social landscape of not only the region, but also the entire nation.

Golf

Time for a round of golf? Then check out the Laurel Hill Golf Club, where golf architect Bill Love used the area's natural beauty to create a stunning 18-hole course that many consider to be unique in the country. If you prefer to simply relax surrounded by crystalline lakes and virtually untrammeled forests, you'll adore Burke Lake Park, which is highlighted by a stunning, pristine lake that's set amid beautiful campgrounds and hiking trails. Feel up to some heavier exercise? Then head on over to Fountainhead Park, where you'll find the most challenging mountain bike trail in the region. Set along the magnificent Occoquan Reservoir, this beautiful oasis is open for fishing, canoeing and kayaking, as well as hiking and camping. Fountainhead is also an access point for hikers traveling along the popular Bull Run Occoquan Trail.

Restaurants

When it's time to tackle some hearty grub, do as the locals do and stop by Georges Steak n' Things, where you'll find burgers, wings and a tantalizing steak and cheese sandwich that will keep you coming back. For something a bit more out of the ordinary, check out Los Toltecas and sample the Mexican jambalaya, followed by enchiladas Veracruz, which are piled high with shrimp and scallops. If you're ready to raise a pint, then drive six minutes away into Fairfax, where you'll find The Auld Shebeen, the area's only genuine Irish pub. In addition to Guinness, it serves traditional Irish fare such as corned beef and cabbage and potato leek soup, all topped off with live Celtic-flavored entertainment.

Fairfax Station makes you feel a bit like you've stepped back into the past a past that's enhanced by modern technology and all the amenities, but imbued with a certain bucolic tranquility and charm. Whenever you need a dose of steel, concrete and ultra-modern living, DC is just minutes away, so you can safely indulge in your penchant for time travel without getting stuck too long between centuries.
