Local parks make list of 21 romantic places in Virginia and DC


Boardwalk birdwatching at Huntley Meadows Park

With just days left until Valentine’s Day and warmer, sunnier temperatures on the way this upcoming week, it’s good to know that two nature-based attractions along the Richmond Highway corridor are part of Fun in Fairfax VA’s updated list of “21 Romantic Places in Virginia and DC, No Reservation Required.”

Huntley Meadows Park, described as a “hidden gem,” made the list for its boardwalk leading to an observation tower with picturesque views over the marsh. Further south along the corridor, Mason Neck State Park
in Lorton was cited for its beautiful trails and views, particularly from a platform overlooking the marsh along the quarter-mile Marsh View Trail.

Both trails mentioned above are accessible and offer ample opportunities to view wildlife. Huntley Meadows Park is located at 3701 Lockheed Boulevard in Alexandria, while Mason Neck State Park is at 7301 High Point Road in Lorton.
