Visiting The Fairfax in the Fall: Hotel, Activities & More

The Fairfax Hotel offers upscale, intimate accommodations in Washington DC. Think sophistication with a classy atmosphere. The fall season is just about upon us and there are many unique upcoming events and activities. We’d like to run you through a few of them and get you excited to stay with us at our hotel. We have a lot to offer many types of visitors and look forward to your visit.

September, October and November are one of the busier seasons of the year for the Washington DC area. With average temperatures in the upper 50s during the month of October, the days are nice in the sun, with a brisk coolness at night. This is the perfect time to visit because the weather isn’t as harsh, there’s plenty to do, and there are many lovely spots to dine at in the area.

Apart from spending time in the city, there are many great nature spots to visit within the area. The George Washington Carver Nature Trail is nearby, as well as Great Falls Park, Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, and the Mount Vernon Trail. Remember to wear a jacket during the day and take wind chill into account when staying out past sundown. Stay hydrated as well. Locals will be used to the weather, but it does get quite cold at night in the fall leading up to the winter months. Remember, layers can always come off if you get too warm. It’s hard to get the chill out of your bones once it’s set in.
