(NAPSI)—Now that the U.S.-Canada land border has re-opened, and as the weather turns cooler, a wonderful way for Canadians to relax and enjoy time with family and friends is on a road trip to Northern Virginia. To make it even better, many hotels, attractions and restaurants have come up with packages specifically for Canadian visitors. 


Here’s a look at a few fun things to do and places to stay:


What To Do


•Show your Canadian passport to the Visitor Center counselors at the Fairfax County Visitors Center, in Tysons Corner Center, and get a free gift along with area information, travel tips and a Visitor Savings digital “pass,” worth $750 in special savings and offers at participating stores and restaurants. At the Alexandria Visitor Center a Canadian passport gets discounted access to 9 historic sites, including George Washington’s Mount Vernon.
