Fairfax is an independent city of only 21,498 people (2000) forming an enclave within the confines of over 1-million Fairfax County west of Washingtin, DC and Arlington, Virginia. It has a compact historic downtown (Main St.) and is a home to George Mason University (GMU) when Nobel Prize-winning economists James M. Buchanan (1986) and Vernon Smith (2002) teach numerous students. My friend Nat (b1bob) from Mechanicsville, Virginia is graduated from GMU which has become the largest public university in the state of Virginia (about 30,000 students). My other VT-friend, Kent (Kentbein) lived in Fairfax in 2004. I was very happy to meet them both personally.

If you need information on Fairfax tourist attractions please switch to Fairfax VT-pages by other VT-ers or City of Fairfax Official Webpage or wait until I come back there to see more.
