A world away. Just minutes away.
Only 45 minutes from Washington, D.C., Fauquier County is located in the unique area
of Northern Virginia. Just beyond the most populated region of the D.C. Metropolitan Area,
Fauquier County's location offers residents and visitors a reprieve from the hustle and
bustle of life's hectic pace.

Visitors to Fauquier enjoy the scenic beauty of the area, in the heart of Virginia hunt
and wine country. But don't be fooled - these rolling pastures and quaint towns and
villages hide a myriad of things to do.

And while you might take advantage of the many day-trips our county offers -- the Civil
War battlefields of Manassas only 10 minutes away, the museums and monuments
of D.C., historic Alexandria only 50 minutes away or shopping till you drop in Fairfax,
just 25 minutes away -- you'll want to come back to Fauquier.
