“Often missed since it's not down by all the other tourist sites. Beautiful Gothic style cathedral (one of the largest in the world) with pieces of Americana embedded throughout (e.g. a piece of the moon from Apollo 11 embedded in the stained glass, Darth Vader as a gargoyle, and more!). Highly encourage taking a tour!”

“The Washington & Old Dominion Railroad Regional Park is a linear regional park in Northern Virginia. The park's primary feature is the Washington & Old Dominion Railroad Trail (abbreviated as W&OD Trail), an asphalt-surfaced paved rail trail that runs through densely populated urban and suburban communities as well as through rural areas. Most of the trail travels on top of the rail bed of the former Washington and Old Dominion Railroad, which closed in 1968. Although the park is 44.8 miles (72.1 km) long, it is only about 100 feet (30 m) wide. The rail trail is approximately 10 feet (3.0 m) wide through much of its length and is suitable for walking, running, cycling, and roller skating.”
