Fairfax County Fall Foliage Tour Blazing With Things to Do and Stylish Falls Church Lodging

Fall Color Ignites Along George Washington Memorial Parkway

FALLS CHURCH, VA--(Marketwire - Nov 5, 2012) - The blazing beauty of Fairfax County ignites each fall and with it comes the opportunity to take advantage of stylish Falls Church lodging and the county's magnificent Fall Foliage Tour.

Starting on the southern side of the George Washington Memorial Parkway where a kaleidoscope of color transforms Mount Vernon into a majestic destination, fall travelers following this three-day tour not only enjoy grand autumn colors, but have the chance to take pleasure in the brisk fall weather to participate in special events such as Hoecakes & Hospitality, Scouting Days and other attractions on the estate.

Motoring toward Falls Church, the serenity of the Fairview Park Marriott hotel in Northern Virginia adds additional color and provides attentive service, fine dining and comfortable accommodations. Meticulously landscaped to provide a park-like setting, the hotel's remarkable summer green space joins the seasonal color change, so guests don't have far to look to maintain an eye on fall color while staying at this sophisticated Fairfax County hotel. The hotel property also features walking paths and jogging trails winding through the woods and around the nearby lakeshore for a serene and captivating setting regardless of the season.

The bold colors of fall embrace the Meadowlark Botanical Gardens to provide travelers with a grand showcase for their second day on the tour. Located just 15 minutes from the hotel this exquisite day trip features native Virginia trees such as the Salvia in the peak of fall color. Another highlight of this stop is the Korean Bell Garden, the only one of its kind in the Western Hemisphere.

As guests of the Marriott's Fairview Park hotel near Tysons Corner, VA, travelers can easily add a variety of shopping, dining and entertainment options to their tour by visiting the famed Tysons Corner Mall, a massive shopping hub packed with hundreds of stores and something for everyone. For added relaxation the hotel also features a heated indoor pool and whirlpool and offers guests 24-hour access to its fully equipped health club.

The final leg of the tour features the spectacular 800-acre Great Falls Park in all its glory. Operated by the National Park Service, the site draws guests from all over the world and features a series of roaring waterfalls which provide stamina for the nearby Potomac River. As the river rushes its way through the park the glowing red and orange trees ignite against the fall sky and white currents for a picturesque display and another remarkable day on this fall tour along the George Washington Memorial Parkway.
