Q: Favorite Restaurants?

A: “We have so many great ones in Fairfax City! We hardly ever leave the city to go out to dinner. I like supporting locally owned businesses!”

*Cho’s Korean BBQ: authentic experience, fresh fo and great service.

*Courtside Thai: flavorful and fresh dishes, using produce from their sidewalk garden.

*Woody’s—who doesn’t love Woody and his famous ice cream?

*The Wine House—hip atmosphere and knowledgeable staff.

*Bollywood Bistro—The crunchy spinach appetizer and Okra dish are my favs.

Q: Must-Do Activities?

*Biking along the Accotink Trail from Arties to Accotink Lake and back—25 miles I think.

*Take a class at the lovely Sherwood Center—I take yoga on Thursdays—love the instructor (who lives in the city too!).

*Jog along the Daniels Run Trail—you feel like you are deep in the woods within city limits.

*Join a neighborhood pool—most have strong summer swim teams and a relaxed atmosphere.

*Farmers Markets on the weekends.

Q: Great stores in the city?

*Oasis Bike Works—cannot beat them for quality service.

*The Factory Vintage T-shirt shop is a favorite of my teen rocker.

*Fair Trade Winds—diverse cool stuff and you know someone is getting paid fairly for their work. Love that. Owners are wonderful too.

*Campers Trophies—dependable and wide selection of plaques and trophies.

*Macro Systems—small IT networking company that is reliable and knowledgeable.
