Fairfax County, Virginia: Connect with America
The Great Falls of the Potomac are one of the great overlooked outdoor adventure spots in the US. Long known and beloved by local paddlers and climbers, they’re just not on the radar of the broader public, which is surprising, given how amazing of a place it is.
The same could be said in general for Fairfax County, Virginia. This place has its own homespun charm and hospitality; it’s basically the northernmost edge of the South. Here you’ll find some of the most unique cultural spots in the country, from Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts (the only national park for the performing arts in the US) to the Workhouse Arts Center, home base to more than 100 working artists (and with its own incredible legacy as a former correctional facility housing women jailed for protesting during the suffrage movement).
Visiting here gives you amazing access to the Smithsonian and all the sites of DC, but with a different vibe and a beauty all its own.

Illinois State Capitol Tour in Springfield (HD)
We got a chance to tour the beautiful Illinois State Capitol building, which was constructed in 1868, in Springfield. It is a National Register of Historic Places. Across the street was a Martin Luther King statue, then at the grounds before the building itself, we saw a Abraham Lincoln and a Stephen Douglas statue. Inside the Illinois Statehouse, there was a lady statue representing the Illinois Welcoming the World message. The rotunda high ceiling was very impressive, as are the floors and stairs which are made of stone and marble.
Second and third floor had statues of former presidents highlighted by President Lincoln, plus a huge painting depicting George Rogers Clark negotiating with Native Americans at Fort Kaskaskia. There are also wall carvings depicting meetings of US personnel with native Americans in the past.
Overall this is a very impressive State Capitol Building that definitely deserves a visit. We also visited the Lincoln Home National Historic Site nearby- see our tour video of it here:
