Cool sights to see in NOVA

Udvar Hazy Air and Space Museum Annex off route 28 in Chantilly. Awesome exhibits including Space Shuttle, SR71 Blackbird...

Museum of the USMC near Quantico. One of the best interactive museums I've ever seen!

Mount Vernon (George Washington's home), incredible interactive movie experience. When the winter at Valley Forge is covered, it actually snows in the theater. Pretty cool stuff, you have to go and see.

Arlington National Cemetary - Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers - changing of the guard AWESOME! "Here rests in honored glory, an American soldier known but to God"

You should really take some of this stuff to the 'Attractions' section of the forum. Great ideas and starting point in this thread, but putting some of these there would let you expand on them a little as well as consolidate some of the attractions as well

Don't Forget

Shenandoah National Park is less than an hour for some in NOVA. Fantastic trails for every level of hiker. Great place to take the kids!

The Bull Run Battle field is a great place to hike around. The visitor center always has friendly people working there.
