There’s Two Amigos, a Mexican restaurant a few doors down from the Expo Center with a lunch buffet (it got a good review on yelp, so it isn’t just me recommending it, but I do recommend the horchatas and pupusas), and Saravana Palace, a vegetarian Indian place over on Rt. 29, also with a buffet. Thai Basil and Minerva are other good places; they’re in the shopping center just down Route 50 before Rt. 28.

Five Guys–the closest one to the Expo is the one in the Target shopping center on Rt. 50.

Willard’s BBQ is the BEST! It’s right there on Willard Road at the Dulles Expo Center. You can take the food to go or sit there and eat. It’s awesome.
Sully Plantation/Historic Site A great tour for those interested in old houses from the Colonial era.
Cox Farms Fall Festival Watch Farmer Jack’s Musical Milking Show, see cute baby animals, drink cider and take a hayride–make sure the kids don’t miss the Dino-Slide!
Fields of Fear Want something spooky to get you in the Halloween spirit? Visit Fields of Fear for bonfires, haunted hayrides, and lots of darkness. For a serious scare, take a trip through the Cornightmare.
The Winery at Bull Run Travel back in time at this scenic vineyard in an authentic 1860′s setting. Taste fine Virginia wines and peek into their rich Virginia heritage with winemaking techniques from the Civil War era, historical buildings & artifacts, including a small museum housing Civil War relics and antique winemaking equipment.
