Aside from being home to the amazing East Gate Orthodontics, the city of Chantilly is home to some pretty awesome sites that are worth checking out! Whether you are a resident of Chantilly, or are just visiting, be sure to check out this guide for all the best spots to visit while you are in town (after stopping by East Gate Orthodontics, of course).
Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center | National Air and Space Museum
The Udvar-Hazy Center is the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum that is located in Chantilly, VA! This museum is home to amazing exhibits like the Space Shuttle, Discovery, and the Enola Gay. The facility was built back in 1999 and was made possible by a generous $65 million gift by Steven F. Udvar-Hazy. This museum is great for anyone that is interested in space or aviation and wants to learn more about the history of both! The entry to the center is completely free. The only cost is for parking, which is $15.
Sully Historic Site
The Sully home, also known as the Sully Plantation, was originally the home of Richard Bland and Elizabeth Collins Lee. The Lee family of Virginia owned this land from the year 1725 until 1839. The land was originally Richard Bland’s fathers, Henry Lee II, and Richard inherited it after he passed away. The Sully home was also a plantation where they grew more sustainable crops like wheat, corn, rye, and barley. Eventually, they also started to produce dairy products, which was under the supervision of Richard’s wife Elizabeth. The Sully Historic Site is available to the public from Sunday-Saturday, except Tuesday, from 11:00 AM until 4:00 PM.
Mustang Sally Brewing Company
The Mustang Sally Brewing Company is an independent brewery that is located in the heart of Chantilly! This brewery offers an open tasting room with an amazing selection of craft beers. This brewery is also dog friendly (they offer treats at the bar), meaning you can take your furry friends right along with you to enjoy the day together. The brewery also offers food served by Chamos, right on the property so that you don’t have to go far to enjoy great food. Mustang Sally’s offers three core beers as well as seven others that alternate from time to time. This brewery is open from Tuesday through Thursday from 3:00 PM till 9:00 PM, Friday and Saturday from 12:00 PM till 10:00 PM, and Sunday from 12:00 PM till 6:00 PM.
