The following is a guide to how you could spend two days exploring the outdoors in Stafford, Virginia.

Day One


  • For the extra adventurous, spend the afternoon with friends and family on the Potomac River. Bring your boat, paddle board, fishing rods, kayak, or canoe. 


  • The Potomac River is known as a diverse and popular fishing destination. Snakeheads as large as 18 pounds have been caught in Stafford. Anglers love the fisheries in Stafford for the vast amounts of bass found here. 


  • When you get off the waters or a long day of hiking, have dinner at one of our local restaurants in Stafford, Virginia. 



  • Find the best hotel rates in Northern Virginia and stay in one of our 29 hotels.



Day Two



  • Looking for some extra fun and adventure? Visit Stafford’s very own FXBG Axe throwing facility for a fun experience. 


  • Watch the breathtaking sunset at Aquia Landing Park. This site was once the end of the Richmond, Fredericksburg & Potomac Railroad line, making it an important transportation point between Washington, DC, and Richmond, Virginia. It was the first place to see naval fire during the Civil War, making it a featured stop on the Civil War Trails. Aquia Landing is also an important stop on the Underground Railroad Network to Freedom. 


  • Keep the party going by visiting one of our local breweries for food trucks, trivia night, or local music and live bands.
