Update: You nominated eleven parks and trails across Fairfax County, and now, four have moved on to the voting round of Patch's Readers' Choice 2012.
Here's your chance to put your money (er — vote) where your mouth is. Cast a vote for Claude Moore Colonial Farm, Huntley Meadow, Meadowlark Botanical Gardens or Burke Lake Park to help crown a winner.
Voting opens July 23 and continues through 11:59 p.m. Aug. 17. Only one vote per user — tell your friends and family to log on to pick their favorite, too!
Original: From idling in Beltway traffic to power lunches, meetings with clients and running errands, sometimes it’s just nice to get away from it all — even if you do it close by.
We want to know where you go in Fairfax County to commune with nature and get away from the noise, the crowds and the cars that come with living in Northern Virginia.
We’ll keep accepting nominations through July 9. After that, nominations will be closed and we’ll start the voting, so make sure to get in your favorites now.
All you need to do to nominate a place is to add it in the comments below. If you already see the location you want to nominate, make sure to add your comment about why it should be included, because we may not be able to add all of them to our poll and we want to make sure the top ones make it into the poll.
Thanks for participating!
